The pecan nuts with their contoured structure, crunchy texture and buttery flavour make for an interesting ingredient to include in a number of dishes. Native to America, these pricey nuts grow enclosed in a brownish-red oval shell. Pecan nuts in fact rank among the top 15 foods with the highest levels of antioxidants. A powerhouse of vitamins and minerals offering some wonderful health benefits, pecan nuts are gaining popularity. A pecan pie is utterly buttery delicious with the sweetness of the custard and pinch of salt to balance your buds. The sweetness of the Trust Sunhera Brown Sugar slides through adding a rich aroma to the dessert. We think we’ve said enough, give it a try folks!
