How to Roast Pinenuts

how to roast pinenuts

Preheat oven to 350. Place pinenuts on a cookie sheet or cake pan. Roast for 5-8 minutes in oven. Pinenuts should be slightly browned and fragrant.


  1. I've always burned pinenuts when I do them in the oven. I need to SEE what is going on. So, I've taken to dry-roasting them in a pan on top of the stove. Non-stick pans are good, but others have worked too cuz the nuts have so much oil inside. Keep your eye on it-- the nuts take ahwile to start to cook, then they'll burn fast if you're not watching them. Keep moving them around with a spoon or spatula.

  2. Thanks for the tip, I can't wait to try this. I have burned many a pine nut stove top.
