As children, my Mom had my brothers and I make our teachers’ Christmas gifts. My younger brother roasted savory pecans using my Mom’s recipe and his teachers raved about them. Decades later, I needed something to make for my colleagues at the holidays and wondered if anyone would like my Mom’s and brother’s roasted savory pecans? Well…. They loved them! I taught by day and roasted by night… little did I know how life was about to change.
A year later, with my Dad’s and husband’s support, I started Mert’s Nuts as my Mom (Gabrielle S. Haab- GSH) watched from her hospice bed. She was thrilled and tickled. We are honored to donate a portion of each Mert’s Nuts sale to benefit the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation (CLF) who’ve graciously partnered with Mert’s Nuts to form the CLF-GSH Skincare Institute in honor of Mom.
Mert’s Nuts is a premium artisanal nut roasting company. Using my Mom’s [proprietary] recipe, we butter roast savory pecans and nuts and top salted caramels with our savory pecans. These pecans are unique: not sweet, not just salty, but flavorful and addictive. The Union League of Philadelphia says our nuts "… heighten the bar experience" in their 1862 restaurant.
These are not your Grandmother’s Bridge nuts.
- No sugar added
- No oil: we roast using USDA AA Lancaster County Butter
- Non GMO
These savory pecans are for the customer who appreciates sophisticated taste (perhaps paired with a fine wine or an artisanal brew), understands the healthy benefits of the pecan and whole ingredients, and values the belief: You get what you pay for.
