Introduction and description

*************** BEING EDITED MORE LATER ********************


Pine nuts are the edible seeds of pines (family Pinaceae, genus Pinus).

About 20 species of pine produce seeds large enough to be worth harvesting; in other pines the seeds are also edible, but are too finicky to extract from their shell.

They are delicious in salads and can be toasted and added to salads and rice.
