Product Details

Product Description: Our fresh pine nuts (also known as pignolias), have a delicate sweet and nutty flavor. Blend pine nuts into a creamy pesto sauce, or add them to cookies and baked goods for a nutty crunch. Roasting the pine nuts will bring out their unique flavor to toss in salads, pastas, and other dishes. Cooking Tips: 1) Pine nuts are commonly heated to intensify their mild nutty flavor. To toast pine nuts in the oven, bake them on a flat tray at 325-degree F for 5-10 minutes, stirring them occasionally to ensure they're evenly toasted and golden brown. 2) To roast them in a dry skillet, cook the pine nuts over medium-low heat for only a few minutes, until they are lightly browned and be careful that they don't burn (small nuts heat up quickly)! 3) Roasted pine nuts go well with vegetables, on salads, and in pasta dishes. Pesto sauce is usually made with unheated pine nuts, but roasting the nuts can add a unique and deep nutty flavor. 4) Pine nuts used in baking can be unheated because roasting can overpower other ingredients in sweet recipes. Unroasted pine nuts add a delicate flavor and nutty crunch to cakes, cookies, and other baked goods. Pine Nut Health Benefits 1) Oleic Acid: Pine nuts are an excellent source of monounsaturated fats, like oleic acid. Oleic acid is responsible for lowering LDL "bad" cholesterol levels, improving antioxidant activity, and supporting cardiovascular function. 2) Appetite Suppressant: A paper presented in 2006 at the American Chemical Society discussed the results of pinolenic acid on feelings of hunger. Researchers found that pinolenic acid stimulates the release of hormones that suppress hunger and provide a sense of fullness. 3) Manganese: Pine nuts are a rich source of manganese, an essential mineral that aids our body's daily functions.
