Five delicious pecan recipes that are perfect for your Big Game Day party
Great things happen when you combine a little imagination with great-tasting, homegrown Georgia pecans! The only nut native to the U.S., pecans are grown in 14 states, with Georgia ranked at number one in production.
In the south, pecans are more than just a pie ingredient. They can be used as a coating for chicken and fish, mixed in with salads, or as a healthy snack on the go. And their flavor isn’t the only perk! Pecans are the nut highest in antioxidants, they’re full of healthy fats, tons of fiber and more than 19 vitamins and minerals.
If you’re looking for an ingredient to spruce up your Big Game Day spread, look no further than the nut aisle. The Georgia Pecan Commission joins The Balancing Act to share five different recipes that are sure to be a hit at your party.
