pine nuts

I have been obsessed with picking them all up as they are strewn on their papery wings by the wind from the still attached to the tree pine cones that are opening, maybe from our mega heat wave, i see them flutter and everywhere I go there they are......once crushed by car tires they leave little oily stains on the blacktop from the pure nutrition mother nature is providing, sadly so much is concrete and pavement, the seeds have no chance to plant in the earth......I collect the loose abandoned nuts and have picked up about 20 cones to strip soon.....what to do with all these free foraged pine nuts?

That's wonderful that you are able to collect them like this! We use pine nuts in our pesto, and sprinkled on salad...yummy & so packed with nutrition!

Happy foraging!!!

Oh, and I keep forgetting to tell you that I tagged you a while back...

Here's the link if you'd like to play along (and if you don't want to, that's okay too :-)
