Pecan Pesto — This recipe puts a twist on an Italian staple, swapping pecan nuts for pine nuts to give pesto a nuttier, more delicate flavor.

Pecan Pie Breakfast Smoothie — If you can’t get enough pecans in your breakfast, this smoothie is another tasty option. It’s a great on-the-go meal and a healthier alternative to pecan pie.

Pecan & Mushroom Burgers — According to one user, these burgers have a “wonderful, meaty flavor that rivals any veggie burger I've ever ordered at a restaurant.” Hearty and filling, they make a great vegetarian or low-calorie alternative to hamburgers.

Uses and Benefits of Pecan Oil
https://goo.gl/FXMqph
You are probably accustomed to using shelled pecans and pecan pieces in all kinds of recipes. But pecans have another form you may be less familiar with: pecan oil. Pecan oil is a delicious and healthy food with a variety of uses and benefits.

Dressings and Dips
Pecan oil can be used as a healthier alternative to oil or butter in salad dressings and dips. Pecan oil contains only half a gram of saturated fat per tablespoon, as opposed to canola oil’s 1 gram per tablespoon, olive oil’s 1.9 grams per tablespoon, and butter’s 7 grams per tablespoon. Some varieties of pecan oil have a nutty pecan flavor and scent. Others have a light, neutral flavor and almost no scent. Depending on the recipe, you may want to use more strongly flavored pecan oil to create unique flavor combinations, or a more neutral pecan oil for its versatility.

Deep Frying
One major benefit of pecan oil is its high smoke point of 470 degrees Fahrenheit, which is higher than the smoke point of corn oil (440 degrees), peanut oil (450 degrees), and soybean oil (460 degrees). This high smoke point makes pecan oil ideal for deep frying. The more neutral varieties of pecan oil are best for high-temperature cooking.

Baking
Pecan oil can be one of the best ingredients to use in pecan sandies, pecan pie, or any other baked good featuring pecans, maple, or cinnamon. Simply substitute pecan oil for any other oil called for in the recipe. In recipes calling for butter, use three-fourths of a cup of pecan oil for every cup of butter.

Hair and Skin Care
Like many oils, pecan oil can make a great moisturizer for dry skin. It’s also a great source for Vitamin A and E. Pecan oil is lighter and less comedogenic than olive oil and coconut oil, making it suitable for use in oil cleansing or as a face moisturizer. If you suffer from dry hair, split ends, or dandruff, try rubbing pecan oil into your hair before showering.

The Wichita Pecan Tree – A Solid Pollinator

Stahmann Estates, one of the largest pecan farms in the world, has three major varieties of pecan trees that produce between eight and nine million pounds of bulk pecan nuts every year: Bradley, Western Schley and the Wichita.

Of the three trees, the Wichita is planted widely and quite popular among pecan farms because it sheds pollen later than the Western Schley, making it the perfect pollinator for the Western, the most popular type of pecan tree.

Advantages of Wichita Pecan Trees

The Wichita is also popular among pecan growers for several other reasons:
• They grow fast and produce fruit at an early age when compared to other varieties of pecan tree.
• They bear about a week earlier than the Western Schley allowing orchards to “spread out” the harvest a bit, without compromising the quality of the Western pecans which are in their final stage of ripening.
• They bear larger nuts than the Western
• The Wichita resist disease better than other varieties of pecan trees

Drawbacks of Wichita Pecan Trees

But these advantages don’t come without a couple of drawbacks:
• Although they grow fast early on, they grow very slow overall
• Wichitas tend to suffer from zinc deficiency and are more susceptible to moisture stress
• Wichita pecans must be collected quickly at harvest time because the kernels turn amber quickly–especially in hot temperatures during the harvest which may impact the quality rating and price of the pecans.

What is the difference between Fancy and Choice Pecans?

Fancy and Choice are qualities that refer to mainly to the consistency of color of the pecan. According to the NPSA’s Voluntary Guidelines for Purchasing Inshell Pecans:

Fancy shelled pecans must be “bright colored, full bodied and solid.” The word “solid” meaning to be of a uniform color not darker than amber.

Fancy shelled pecans are also referred to as U.S. No. 1 pecans, according to the U.S. Grade Standards for Shelled Pecans published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. According to these standards, U.S No. 1 (Fancy) pecans also need to be:
1) Well dried;
2) Fairly well developed;
3) Fairly uniform in color;
4) Not darker than "amber" skin color;
5) Free from damage or serious damage by any cause;
6) Free from pieces of shell, center wall and foreign material; and,
7) Comply with tolerances for defects (see §51.1439)

In addition, the U.S. No. 1 designation (Fancy) also must meet sizing requirements. For halves they must be “fairly uniform in size; conform to size classification or count specified; and comply with tolerances for pieces, particles, and dust (see §51.1437).”

Versatile Pecans for Vegan and Gluten Free Recipes

Pecans are so versatile as an ingredient to anybody, whether they’re vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free. Because people have different lifestyles, pecans can also be used as a healthy snack option. They provide just the right amount of sweetness to any dish.

Here’s A Few Vegan and Gluten Free Options:

Vegan Pecan Pie – Vegans embrace the plant-based diet and often have to find ways to make other favorites to match. Pecan pie is one of the foods that can be converted to vegan. Even though the ingredients incorporate vegan ingredients, the pecan pie is described as delicious. It has a top and bottom layer or pecans.

Gluten Free Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole – Sweet potato casserole is not only meant for seasonal times. You can make it any time during the year. The sweet potato casserole has a pecan and oat topping. It’s a delicious side item for those with dietary restrictions being vegan or gluten-free.

Paleo & Vegan Pecan Pie Bars – There’s an easy way to make pecan pie bars that are also vegan and Paleo diet friendly. This recipe has only 6 ingredients.

No Bake Vegan Pecan Bites – The need for a quick and easy snack has brought a new recipe online. The pecan bites are packed with protein and are Paleo, Vegan, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free. These bites satisfy anyone’s craving for pecan pie.

Specialty and gourmet industries can use pecans in a variety of ways. If you’re looking to create a product for the food industry, try pecans for your next recipe creation. For more details, check out http://www.stahmannpecan.com/versatile-pecans-for-vegan-and-gluten-free-recipes/

Stahmann Farms, one of the largest pecan growers in the world, has a 3,200 acre pecan farm that produces between eight and nine million pounds of bulk pecan nuts every year.

Stahamann grows three main varieties of pecan trees on the estate: Western Schley, Wichita, and the Bradley. Of the three, the Bradley tends to be less popular, but not according to Deane Stahmann, who once said “If the Western Schley is the king of pecans, then Bradley is the queen.”

While the Western Schley is considered to be the “workhorse” of pecan trees, it wouldn’t yield as many pecan nuts without the help of the Bradley.

Bradleys are typically used as pollinators for Western Schley pecan trees because they shed pollen later in the season at the perfect time for pollinating the Westerns. Another advantage of mature Bradley pecan trees being “late bloomers” is that they are more resistant to freezes since the buds are still tight when the buds on others, like the Western, might be open and more susceptible to a late season frost.
