They say a pesto without pine nuts is like a day without sunshine, and if tradition means anything at all, they're right! With fresh basil and garlic, pine nuts have been a staple in the pestos of northern Italy for centuries. Traditionally ground together in a mortar and pestle, then seasoned according to the chef's whims, these natural ingredients added native zest to pastas, salads and other dishes. Today, pine nuts have become a gourmet addition to baked goods, soups and sautes, green salads and roasted meats, where their mild essence and delicate crunch bring pleasant enhancement to almost any flavor profile.
