This is a raw, shelled pine nut. The pine nut (pinon) is a small, oval light brown nut with sweet, rich nutty flavor.
Pine Nuts are an essential ingredient in pestos, giving it its depth and richness. They are used famously in Italian and Mexican/Southewestern cooking. Toast them for an even richer flavor. Add to salads, pastas and rice dishes – chopped or whole.
