Raw Mediterranean Pine Nuts (8 oz Bag)
Authenticity in the kitchen is all the rage these days, and that means using the right ingredients in the right way. For your finest Italian dishes, only real top-quality Mediterranean Pine Nuts will do—and that’s what we have right here. These are superior pine nuts, the best in the world, originating from sun-bathed Old World stone pine plantations in Spain, Portugal and Italy. Their flavor is unquestioned, a delicate natural balance of nutty, buttery, sweet, savory, verdant and velvety all at once. Perfectly formed, light and crunchy, these gorgeous pine nuts will do truly amazing things for your pestos, pizzas, pastas and salads.
Our half-pound pack brings you enough rare Mediterranean Pine Nuts to work your kitchen magic for that upcoming dinner party, and still have enough left over to enjoy an exceptional evening snack at your leisure. Here’s how to toast pine nuts to creamy, crunchy perfection, right on your stovetop: Fully heat a 10” skillet on medium-low. Toss in enough pine nuts to cover the bottom in a single layer. Heat carefully, stirring frequently to turn before they burn. Don’t over-cook; they’ll be done quickly. Remove from heat when lightly browned, transfer the warm seeds to a serving bowl, and proceed to enjoy one of Nature’s most decadent little pleasures!
No, real Mediterranean Pine Nuts aren’t cheap. There is only so much of an annual crop to go around, and bringing the seeds to market is an incredibly labor-intensive endeavor. Add their soaring popularity for use in heart-healthy and raw-foods diets, in Mediterranean-style cooking, and especially in traditional holiday baked goods such as pignoli and other old-time cookies, quickbreads, coffee cakes and pastries, and you’ll appreciate how precious these pine nuts can be. We invite you to enjoy the prettiest, best-flavored, freshest Mediterranean Pine Nuts available today.

I use a lot of pine nuts. I love to cook and they go well in many dishes. Lately I've been into Couscous and adding a bit of pine nuts makes it all the better. Unfortunately, the nuts I can find at the supermarket are very nice, but I didn't know what I was missing until I tried these.
Unlike the supermarket variety, these are bigger, softer and creamier with an intense nutty flavor that is just what I'm looking for. I've taken to setting aside a few of these to munch on raw while I cook. They're so good that they work as a stand-alone snack. And they're great on salads, raw or toasted.
As to quality, they come hermetically sealed in plastic. When you cut away the hermetic seal, you still have a conventional zip-lock. Zip-locks aren't perfectly hermetic, but this package is high quality and I have no doubt the zip-lock will keep them for the long term
I can't think of anything bad to say. Even the ordering was easy, the shipping was quick, and I was kept informed of the order's progress by email so there was never any wondering.
