Homemade Pecan Pie Nut Butter (Plantiful Bakery) is an ideal American treat, and needs no palm oil. Make your own calcium-rich nut butter with pecans and cashews. This recipe is flavoured with vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup. It even contains a little rum, for more taste.
Pecan nuts are very popular in American cuisine, often to make pecan pie. Taken from a Native American word to describe nuts that require a stone to crack, they are popular in the state of Georgia, where the city of Albany has over 600,000 pecan trees. Pecan pie was actually created by French immigrants in New Orleans (almost 80 pecans are used in the typical pecan pie).
