The holidays kick in, and suddenly, pecans are everywhere. Rightly so – this tiny tree nut boasts a buttery flavor, contoured structure, and crunchy texture that makes it a must-have. Enjoy tasty pecans on their own or as an ingredient in your favorite dishes, such as the classic pecan pie or pecan cookies. Grab a bag of coated pecans for a midday snack or plain pieces to add a satisfying crunch, as a garnish in salads and accompaniment to shared cheese plates.
Native to North America, pecan trees were first cultivated in the 1880s. But it was in Amsterdam that our great-great-grandfather began selling specialty pecan mixes in 1934! A purveyor of quality gifts and treats, our founder took special pride in our gourmet mixes – and we use his recipes to this day.
Not only are they delicious, but did you know that pecans are also packed with nutrients? In fact, you can easily call the pecana nutritional powerhouse, since it contains more than 19 minerals and vitamins. Chief among them: Vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin A, zinc, B vitamins, calcium, folic acid, phosphorus, and potassium.
You, too, can enjoy all the nutritional benefits pecans have to offer with the extensive variety at L’Orenta. Choose from:
Pecan Pieces (midget and medium) & Halves: The perfect ice cream topping or addition to any baked good. Sprinkle on top of gooey cinnamon rolls or add to the batter of breads, brownies, and bars. Any way you serve them, raw pecans are delectable.
If you’re looking for a gourmet snack, it doesn’t get better than pecans. Few nuts are as flavorful as the pecan, and at L’Orenta, you can choose from numerous options to find the right product for your palate. Use them in a recipe, add them in a holiday gift basket, and keep a bag or two in a nearby pantry or drawer to curb midday hunger.
