These lovely little seeds are used worldwide in so many cuisines. Recipes can be found from Native American to Mediterranean to Asian cultures.
They are also known as pignoles, pinon, pine kernel, the Italian nut and pignolia. Pine nuts are actually the seeds found inside the pine cone. While every tree produces seeds, only certain trees have nuts that taste good enough to be edible. Pine Nuts
I know that last week's newsletter contained a recipe using Meyer lemons. They're fresh in the stores now and that is a lot of how I decide what to cook. There are a lot of times that Dr. Gourmet recipes follow a theme ingredient for a week or so and it's almost always because of what I find fresh and good in the market.

This recipe is low in sodium, but it contains lactose and should be avoided by those who are lactose intolerant. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should also avoid it, as it contains multiple GERD triggers.
