Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Pine nuts can be eaten raw or roasted. Raw pine nuts are creamy white and have a slightly resinous flavor that is eliminated by roasting. Raw pine nuts are ground and used to make Italian pesto sauce. Pine nuts can be roasted in a 350°F (180°C) oven or on top of the stove until golden brown. Pine nuts are used in salads, stuffing, and other savory dishes, and can be used to make cookies, breads, and desserts.
