Did you know that April is National Pecan Month? What better time to enjoy pecans in a variety of different recipes than now. Pecans are a member of the hickory family and are not only delicious, but good for you as well. A serving of pecans (12 – 15 nuts) is loaded with heart healthy antioxidants. Pecans contain nineteen different vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins and zinc.
