The process of extracting the oil has not changed for centuries. Pecans are first ground and slowly roasted to perfection in cast-iron kettles, then expeller-pressed and lightly filtered. The resulting warm paste is then pressed in a hydraulic press. Following mechanical extraction, the oil is lightly filtered and bottled. The leftover cake is sold as cattlefeed or for use in bakeries.
