Snaphot: Pinons

Pine nuts.

My friend Cecile is visiting from Belgium, and she brought me a little gift: pine nuts, collected during a hike in the south of France.  I’ve never even seen a pine nut in it’s shell before!  I’m going to make something really special with these; perhaps some Pignoli Cookies.

  • I’ve eaten pine nuts off the tree in Southern Utah, and they look a little different than yours, smoother and maybe even smaller. But the taste of fresh, raw pine nuts is unequaled. I hope you ate a bunch just out of the shell!

  • Oh no, I haven’t yet! But I certainly will now.
