Munch a Bunch of Pine Nuts in China

One of the fathers came to my class for the first time and after we were almost done doing our lesson on vegetables at the local wet market here in my neighbourhood in Kunming, he bought us all a big bag of some kind of nut or seed, I thought it was some kind of pumpkin or sunflower seed…nope, I was wrong. It was pine nuts.

I haven’t seen them much in China but I have a favourite recipe for Broccoli, Cheese and Pine Nuts that I like to make to go with chicken – I can’t cook it much. Now I know what to look for, of course the time consuming part is getting the seeds out of the shell….not as easy as other seeds. I did a little research and these are Asian Pine Nuts either from Korea, Siberia or the Himalayans. And yes, there come from the pine cones of pine trees.

Periodically in China since 2005 to research my cookbooks and travel in China and southeast Asia. Loving the experience. Want to keep in touch with my friends and family all over the world! I published my Chinese Cookbook called 'Roz Weitzman's World of Chinese Comfort Food'. This week I published my latest in my series of Chinese cooking called "Roz Weitzman's World of Yunnan Food". Please won't you scribble a thought or two. I really appreciate your comments! AND IF YOU SHOULD WISH TO REPOST MY RECIPES OR OTHER OF MY POSTS ON YOUR OWN BLOG, BE SO KIND AS TO POST A LINK BACK TO MY BLOG AND GIVE ME CREDIT FOR MY ORIGINAL WORK. MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE.
