Description 

 

Pine Nuts have been a delicacy in many cuisines for centuries. Pine Nuts are the nuts produced by several varieties of pine trees. Pine Nuts are delicious when toasted and sprinkled on salads, pilaf, couscous, or pasta.

 

Pine Nuts are a main ingredient in traditional pesto sauce and a primary ingredient in Italian Pignoli cookies. They’re also a tasty addition to pizza, quick breads, and muffins. The distinctive flavor of Pine Nuts mellows with cooking and develops a nutty, almost sweet taste.

Recipe included; see our website for additional recipes.

Recipes

Pignoli (Pine Nut Cookies) with Fennel Pollen
Pignoli (Pine nut cookies) are often thought of as Christmas cookies, but their delicate flavor and crisp texture make them a natural accompaniment to light, summery desserts like fresh fruit, ice cream & sorbet. This recipe varies from the traditional version in several ways, most notably by the use of fennel pollen, instead of ground fennel seed. While fennel pollen has the same distinctive anise-like flavor as fennel seed, it's much lighter, more delicate and less cloying.

These cookies only take 15 - 18 minutes to bake up crisp & golden brown, so they won't heat up the kitchen on warm days - and their intoxicating aroma is guaranteed to drive everyone in the house (if not the entire neighborhood) wild!

Cold Sliced Beef Sirloin with Herb Sauce
This is a great, light dinner for hot days. Best of all, it can be made a day ahead of time and refrigerated. If you refrigerate the sauce, be sure to return it to room temperature before serving. This is excellent when served with cooked white beans, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with fresh cracked pepper.

The beef can be served rolled up and fastened with a toothpick, then drizzled with the sauce - or it can be served in overlapping layers which are drizzled with sauce. Try it with a crusty bread, chilled wine and tossed greens. If you have a bit of fresh basil left from the recipe, use it to garnish your platter of sirloin.
