pine nut definition and meaning

What is "pine nut"?

Pine nuts, also known as pignoli, are small, ivory-colored seeds harvested from the cones of certain pine tree species. They have a delicate buttery taste and a soft texture that adds a unique dimension to both savory and sweet dishes. Pine nuts are particularly popular in Mediterranean cuisine, where they are used in recipes like pesto, salads, and baked goods. Due to their labor-intensive harvesting process and specific geographical locations, pine nuts can be relatively expensive compared to other nuts, but their distinctive flavor and culinary versatility make them a sought-after ingredient in various culinary traditions.
