10 Credits

April is National Pecan Month, and a great time to learn more about this powerhouse of nutrition.  The word pecan is derived from an Algonquin word meaning “nut requiring a stone to crack.”  Native tribes in the U.S. and Mexico relied on the nut for its nutritional value.  In 1780, Thomas Jefferson planted pecan trees at Monticello and soon after shared them with George Washington.  Pecans, favored as a nutritious snack, have even been taken into space to be enjoyed by astronauts!
