We are happy to finally stock Pinenuts again at a reasonable price. Pinenuts are the small edible seeds of the female cone in a Pine tree and are also known as Pine Kernels. They are deliciously crunchy with a sweet buttery texture and are the main ingredient in traditional pesto recipes. Pine kernels are a great source of plant derived nutrients, essential minerals, vitamins and "heart friendly" monounsaturated fatty acids that help benefit in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.
The cashew nut is served as a snack or used in recipes, like other nuts, although it is actually a seed. The cashew apple is a fruit, whose pulp can be processed into a sweet, astringent fruit drink or distilled into liqueur.
