Pecans: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Shelled pecans can be used straight out of the package. Chopped pecans are used in baking and are especially popular in the American South where they are used to make a traditional pecan pie, a popular dessert. They are also used in savory dishes, such as stuffing, and are added to a number of other foods, such as ice cream and cookies. Pecans are often spiced and served whole as a snack.
