Pine Nuts Or Pignolas
Pine Nuts grow in many parts of the world. American Indians have harvested them in the West for thousands of years. We buy Chinese pine nuts for their crisp texture and uniform size.The nutty flavor and crunch of pine nuts enhance many dishes. They give a special touch to a tossed salad, and Pesto wouldn't be Pesto without pine nuts! They are often used in Spanish and Italian cuisines, both in savory dishes and desserts.
