Pine Nuts are harvested from specific species of pine trees selected for their great-tasting seeds. They are also called pinons, pignoli and pignolia.
Pine Nuts are a premium ingredient with a rich, creamy texture and buttery flavor. They are best known for their use in pesto, Italian cookies, pasta and salads. Toast Pine Nuts briefly in a skillet or sheet pan to bring out extra rich flavor and crunch. Store in an airtight container for the best shelf life.
