Delicious, sweet and creamy!
 
Pine nuts are the edible seeds of pine trees. They are small, soft and creamy in texture. They are also known as pinon, pinolos, and pignole. They are a rich source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid which helps to lower LDL or 'bad cholesterol' and increase 'good cholesterol' or HDL. They are high in vitamin E and B complex vitamins and a range of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

How to enjoy: Pine nut kernels are excellent in stir-fries, tossed in a salad or in a stuffing. A light roasting brings out their natural rich flavour and creates a crispy texture. Eaten raw the nuts have a creamy soft texture. Pine nuts are a favourite ingredient in pesto.

Grown: Pine trees grow in the wild cold and taiga forest regions of the northern hemisphere. They are straight erect trees with large stem and their flowers develop into a cone. The female cones take about two–three years to mature after pollination. At maturity, the female-cones may reach from as small as 3 cm, to a very large cone reaching about 35 cm. Once mature and dry, the cones naturally open (split) up to release the seeds. Once harvested, they are pasteurised to eliminate any bacteria before being packaged. No insecticides or pesticides were used during the growing process and no preservatives or additives were used during the processing of the nuts.
