Nuts about Pecans
The Lone Star State tree is the pecan, so Texans are happy to indulge in the flavorful little nut. You’ll find pecan orchards and specialty shops across the state, including the tiny town of Chillicothe, close to the Oklahoma border. You’ll marvel at the number of sweet and savory creations and ingredients here, whether it’s pure Texas honey, chocolate-covered pecans and brittle, slabs of fudge, or even pecan virgin oil, a nutty alternative to olive or vegetable oil.
