Pine nuts are small and elongated seeds harvested from the fruit cones of pine trees. These fruit cones resemble a pine cone. When mature pine nuts are ready to be harvested, the fruit cones are collected and dried. Then they are processed by opening their scales and extracting the pine nuts.
Partly due to this labour-intensive process, pine nuts are more expensive than other nut varieties.
They are delicious as a snack or in a delicious salad. But you can also add them to freshly cooked spinach. It is also the basis for a homemade pesto.
How do you roast pine nuts without burning them?
Pine nuts are often toasted to intensify their mild nutty flavor. If you want to roast them in the oven, it is best to place them on the flat plate for 7 minutes. The temperature of the oven should then be 165 degrees Celsius. Stir them occasionally to make sure they are evenly toasted and golden brown.
Alternatively, you can also roast them in a dry frying pan. Fry the pine nuts over medium heat for just a few minutes, until lightly browned, being careful not to burn them! Keep in mind that pine nuts are very small and therefore burn quickly.
