Recipe Roundup: Pine Nuts

Toasted or raw, pine nuts add a great flavor and crunch. This week’s Recipe Roundup: Pine Nuts showcases 30 ways to add them to your favorite recipes

 

I didn’t know much about pine nuts, or start cooking with them, until just a few years ago. I love pesto, but had no idea pine nuts was one of the ingredients until I learned to make it myself. Now I always have a bag of pine nuts in the freezer, and use them as often as I can. Raw pine nuts are pretty good, but toast them and they get a beautiful golden brown and develop such a wonderful nutty flavor and crunch. However, you’ve got to keep your eye on them as they toast. They take a couple of minutes to go from raw to golden, but then will burn in just seconds. Once pine nuts are burnt, that is it…you’ve got to throw them away. Pine nuts are expensive, so that’s the last thing you want to do.

This week’s Recipe Roundup: Pine Nuts showcases 30 ways to use pine nuts in cooking.
