Quick Guide to Pine Nuts

Pine Nuts or Pine Kernels are the edible seeds inside a pine cone. There are certain species of Pine Tree which produce the larger, best flavoured pine nuts suitable for eating. Pine nuts are actually a seed, and when harvested contain a hard outer shell which must be removed. It is the inner kernel that we eat.

Please note that pine nuts and pine kernels are the same thing!
