It’s not just their name. Pine Nuts do in fact come from pine cones. Not all pine cones, just from certain varieties of pine tree.
Known famously for making pesto possible, they are a rich in nutrients and great natural source of essential minerals, iron, zinc, Vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium and manganese.
They are a delicious addition to salads, trail mixes, muffins, cakes and raw energy balls.
