Description

Organic Pine Nuts are perfect for gourmet pesto.

Pine nuts are actually seeds from the pine cone.  These pointy little seeds are delicious, creamy and make a perfect garnish or ingredient in a range of sweet and savoury dishes.

They cost more than most seeds because of the time it takes to grow the precious cone.  The tough process of removing the soft seeds from the tough outer shell also makes them difficult to harvest.

These tasty organic pine nuts are a luxurious choice.  They have a firm but smooth texture which is perfect for making delicious, smooth pesto.

They are popular across the globe but are most popular in Europe and Asia as an addition to salads, vegetable dishes or baked into rustic loaves.
