Pine Nuts, Pinon – The Find and The Roast

You have probably eaten pine nuts at some point in your life. Many restaurants sprinkle them on salads and some dishes have them added in for flavor. The flavor is super nice but most people don’t realize the elusive process involved in finding and picking the nuts. If you have ever priced pine nuts in a store, you know they aren’t cheap which places a high value on a great harvest! Growing up in New Mexico, we learned all about pine nuts or as we call them piñon. I made a video to show the picking and roasting process we New Mexicans get so excited about!
