April is National Pecan Month!

Pecans are a delicious superfood that can help you improve your health and watch your weight. It’s no wonder the entire month of April is dedicated to this nutritious nugget. We're celebrating by hosting our annual Royalty Pecans Recipe Challenge every spring, ending on April 30th. We challenge you to think outside the pie and send us creative pecan-infused recipes!
