Pine nuts are the edible seed gathered from ripe pine cones. Most pine cones have seeds, but only a few varieties are good to eat. The Korean Pine Nut grown in a wide swath of North West Asia is the most common type of pine nut on the market. It is known for its stubby corn kernel-like shape, creamy color, smooth texture, and a subtly sweet mildly nutty flavor that is enhanced through roasting and toasting.
Pine nuts are popular in Italian cuisine. They call them the “Pinoli” and frequently use them in fresh basil pesto sauces, baked into breads, and as toppers to biscotti, cookies, meats and vegetables. The pinoli nut is also popular in hummus and quinoa, or with vegetables like asparagus, zucchini, and brussel sprouts. They are complimented by rosemary, garlic, peppers, fennel, and olive oil.
Pine nuts have a relatively short shelf life and must be consumed within a few weeks for best flavor and texture. They can be frozen to extend their shelf life slightly. Buy nuts online for the best variety and lowest prices.
