Pine Nut Kernels
Pine nuts are the edible seeds of pine trees. The seeds are located inside the cones of certain species of pine trees and are harvested by hand. Once harvested, the seeds are removed from the cones and the hard outer shell is cracked open to reveal the edible kernel inside.
Pine nut kernels are small, elongated, and ivory-coloured. They have a delicate, slightly sweet flavour and a buttery texture, which makes them a popular ingredient in both sweet and savoury dishes. They are a common ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine and are often used in salads, pasta dishes, and pesto sauce.
