Pine Kernels/pine nuts

The small, cream-coloured seeds coming from the cones of the Mediterranean stone pine tree, they have a resinous flavour and oily texture; and when lightly roasted are excellent when added to salads or as part of a Mediterranean-style stuffing. They are also known by their Italian name of pignoli.

Pine nuts can quickly become rancid if they become too warm, so are best kept in a fridge or cool larder.
