"All of the pine trees have edible seeds."
Thanks for the info, Sierra. I have always wondered if I could harvest the seeds from our local pine trees. It's no big deal to heat the cones...I used to stick them in the microwave to open them up and melt the sap to make them shiny for wreaths. The seeds would just fall out.
By the way, dawgs, all nuts are seeds.

We get by with a little help from our friends

The nuts in our pine cones are so small it would take ages to get a spoon ful. The only way I've ever eaten them is to put the brown petal containing the nut between my teeth (like an artichoke) and pull it thru. It taste a bit like peanut butter to me. If that was the type we had to depend on, they would be even more expensive that they already are.

I've found that organic pine nuts have more of a pine hint to them than non-organic, but neither tastes like a pine tree (lol, or what I would imagine a pine tree to taste like). I love them to pieces and use them in everything from salads to pasta to muffins (raspberry or blackeberry pine nut muffins - yum!)
