Pecan

One of the most popular of the dessert nuts, the pecan is native to the southern part of the United States and is cultivated and used widely throughout that country. It is slim and oval in shape, with a brittle, reddish-brown shell which is removed before the nut is eaten or used in cooking. The pecan is a popular ingredient in many American pies and flans and may be used in the same way as the WALNUT.
