Expert Tips

  • Purchasing Look for pine nuts in the grocery store near the other nuts. Look for budget-priced pine nuts in the bulk-foods section of the store or in club stores.
  • Did You Know? Pignoli ("peen-YOH-lee") is the Italian word for pine nut. The long process used to extract the nuts from the cones makes them expensive.
