Pine nuts are seeds of a pine, also called Pinus. The pine can grow up to fifty meters tall, but its growth is very slow. That is one of the reasons that these pips are more expensive than other pips. There are as many as twenty species of pine, whose seeds are large enough to harvest. The kernels are located in the pine cones. Shaking them will release them.
Pine nuts are packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. They are rich in the mineral manganese and copper. It also contains vitamin E and vitamin K, which ensure strong bones and good blood circulation. One tablespoon of pine nuts contains 92 calories, which is due to the high amount of unsaturated fats in the product.
Pine nuts are widely used in Italian dishes, such as pesto, but also (lightly toasted) in salads. The kernels have a slightly resinous taste and are rich in oil.
