Celebrate National Pecan Month With A Sweet Treat From One Of These New Mexico Shops
April is National Pecan Month and most people don’t know that the Land of Enchantment is one of the top producers of pecans in the country! In fact, the state comes in at a narrow second to Georgia in nationwide production of the nut.
To celebrate this, we’re featuring a few places to grab a delicious pecan dessert, ranging from classic pies to some very New Mexican concoctions.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Those look so delicious! Which do you hope to sample first? If we missed one of your favorite locations, be sure to let us know where else you like to grab a pecan-based dessert in New Mexico.
