Pecans are a type of nut that are native to North America and are widely grown in the southern United States, particularly in states such as Georgia, Texas, and Oklahoma. Our pecan butter is made only from the best pecans grown in the United States, ensuring the highest quality and flavor in every jar.
Pecan trees grow well in warm climates and require a long growing season, making the southern United States an ideal location for pecan production. Pecan trees can reach heights of up to 100 feet and can live for over 300 years. The nuts grow in clusters on the trees and are typically harvested in the fall. Pecans can be harvested either by hand or using mechanical harvesters, and the nuts must be handled with care to ensure that they are not damaged during the harvesting process.
Once harvested, the pecans are processed to remove any impurities and to bring out their natural flavors. This typically involves roasting the nuts to enhance their flavor and to remove any unwanted tastes or odors.
The roasted pecans are then ground into a fine paste to create pecan butter. Pecan butter has a rich, nutty flavor and a smooth texture, making it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. Pecan butter is often used in baking to add flavor and texture, and can also be used as a spread on toast or as a topping for oatmeal or yogurt.
