Go Nuts Over National Pecan Month

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Shopping

October through December are peak harvesting months for the delectable pecan, a nut so nutritious and delicious that it's been an essential part of dessert and candy recipes for hundreds of years.

The state of Georgia produces about 100 million pounds of pecans a year. The nut is so beloved that it has its own month-long celebration each November called "National Georgia Pecan Month." Much of Georgia's bountiful crop ends up glazed, candied and in all manner of baked goods from pecan pies to Hummingbird Layer Cakes right here in Myrtle Beach.

Many of the tastiest pecans that come to Myrtle Beach are lovingly merged with ingredients to produce timeless traditional recipes at River Street Sweets at Broadway at the Beach. Born in Savannah, Georgia where the people have a deep affection for pecans, River Street Sweets came to Broadway at the Beach five years ago. It brought an international reputation for creating outstanding sweets and baked goods, as well as its luscious recipe for sweet, buttery pralines made fresh daily using cream, butter, sugar and fresh Georgia pecans.

At the Broadway shop, the best pecans to come out of Georgia are offered in all kinds of ways. Pecans cooked in a salty, slightly sweet glaze, then separated by hand on a large marble slab become mouthwatering Glazed Pecans. There are Sugar & Spice Pecans, Roasted Pecans and Chocolate Pecans. Fluffy nougat is melded with warm, creamy caramel, then topped with fresh pecan pieces to produce pecan divinities and log rolls that simply melt in your mouth.

It's hard to resist getting these special snacks by the pound for yourself. But don't forget that the shop also offers gourmet nut gifts. Combo tins make great gifts for the special people in your life. And you'll put a smile on the face of any hostess when your arrive at a holiday party with a gift from River Street Sweets.

Incredible sweets made from timeless recipes owe their popularity to the humble pecan. But for pecan lovers and health enthusiasts, the pecan brings so much more to the party than flavor and crunch.

Pecans have antioxidant properties said to protect the body from diseases. They have even been found to help lower cholesterol. A good source of protein and fiber, pecans are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium and the B vitamins — and they are rich in potassium and phosphorus.

Celebrate National Georgia Pecan Month the way those in Savannah do. Stop by River Street Sweets at Broadway at the Beach and sample the delicious confections created with the help of the great Georgia pecan.

Whites and red, blushes and ports, and even fruit wines are hand-crafted and bottled with Coastal's distinctive labels. Whether you need a special bottle for a romantic evening or just want a nice wine to enjoy when you kick back and relax, you can find it here.
