Buyer's guide

Pecans are native to North America where they're still used in abundance, especially in cakes, pies and cookies. They belong to the same family as the walnut and have the same distinctive texture and 'brain-like' shape, but a slightly sweeter taste. Pecans are prone to rancidity, so use them as fresh as possible.
