What Are Pecan Halves?
Related to the walnut, pecans are native to America, and grow enclosed in a glossy, browny-red oval shell. The kernel inside shares the walnut's trademark grooved surface but has a slightly more even, oval shape.
Its skin is a warmer, lighter brown, and the nut itself is creamier in colour. It goes well in both savoury and sweet dishes, most famously pecan pie, a classic recipe from the American south.
