We’re just little nuts! The pine nut is in fact the seed of a pine tree (about 20 species produce seeds large enough to harvest) The consumption of pine nuts dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times when they were commonly preserved in honey. Yum! Since then, they have become a universal ingredient and have many other names: pinon, pignon, pignoli, pinolos, pinhao, and pignole – but however you say it, they certainly add a special something to any dish. At Royal Nut we pride ourselves on sourcing the highest grade of pine nuts available.
