Pine nuts are generally enjoyed raw; you can also roast them before consumption. As with most nuts, roasting gives pine nuts a distinct taste and aroma. Sprinkle some salt and pepper, and they are ready to eat. The seeds have a sweet and buttery flavor. It is used extensively in the preparation of pesto and pasta, casseroles and meat curries. The nuts are also added to vegetable and fruit salads. Chopped pine nuts are sprinkled on yoghurt, sundaes and ice cream to add texture to the dishes. They are also added to biscuits, cookies, granola and crunch bars.
People who are allergic to peanuts and other types of nuts may have an allergic reaction to pine nuts. Some individuals report that after eating pine nuts, they experience a bitter aftertaste. This symptom normally goes away in just a few minutes, but may also last for a few hours.
