Did you know pecans provide nearly 10 percent of the recommended daily value for zinc?
Pecans are the only tree nut that grows naturally in North America, and were a major food source for Native Americans during the autumn months because of their plentiful supply. The word “Pecan” is a Native American word of Algonquin origin that was used to describe any nut needing a stone to crack.
There are a couple different variations of pecan pie. My favorite of course is Chocolate Pecan Pie.
The origin of the pecan pie is a little unclear. Some say the French substituted pecans in their pies while conquering New Orleans. Others say the syrup company Karo first published the recipe. Whatever the history, its spot is wee-deserved at your holiday table or windowsill.
I decided to add a Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe. I chose this recipe because it has a video.
