PINE NUTS – really are harvested from the pine cones of evergreen trees, though the nuts of most backyard varieties are too small to be worth anyone’s while. The seeds grow under the scales on the pine cone and take three whole years to reach maturity. Cones with mature nuts are harvested, dried, and then winnowed to remove the nuts. This time-consuming and labor-intensive process at least accounts for their high ticket price once they reach bulk bins and store shelves. Pine nuts are very high in oil, giving them an almost buttery texture. Crunch a few on their own and you might be able to detect a slightly resinous pine-like flavor. Once mixed with other ingredients, their flavor is more mild and sweet.
