Pecans are the most versatile tree nut — they can be eaten alone — raw, roasted or flavored — as a healthy, delicious snack or they can enhance almost any recipe as an ingredient. Pecans are perfect as a topping or ingredient in salads, vegetables, yogurt, oatmeal, sauces, breads and, of course, every kind of dessert. Store pecans in the freezer and have them on hand year-round.
