About Pine Nuts Organic
True to their name, pine nuts do come from pine trees—pine cones, specifically—but they’re not actually nuts; they’re seeds.
Pine nuts have a mild buttery flavour and creamy texture more like cashews and macadamia nuts.
Storage and shelf life
Store pine nuts in a cool, dry, airtight container, away from the sunlight and heat. It’s a good idea to store in the refrigerator too, the coolness helps the seeds maintain freshness and allows them to last longer.
These nuts, when stored properly, will keep their taste and texture for up to 1 year.

How to use
You can add pine nuts to baked goods, granola, pasta dishes, salads, smoothie bowls, and anything else that could use extra flavor, crunchy texture, and a nutrition boost. You can also blend them into soups, sauces, and dips for a creamy texture that’s dairy-free and vegan-friendly.
Pine nuts can be used in place of any other nut in a sweet or savory recipe. Before you add them to recipes, it’s best to toast them. To toast them, in order to being out a deeper nutty flavor, heat a dry skillet over medium-low heat, then add the nuts and shake frequently. Keep a close watch on the pan and remove them as soon as they turn golden-brown.
Other interesting information
“Pine nut syndrome” can occur in some individuals. After 12 to 48 hourse, one may notice a persistent metallic taste lasting from a few days to a couple of weeks. This is not an allergy, but simply an adverse reaction to the nuts. Toasting them reduces the chance of a reaction occurring.
