Geeks and Pine Nuts
Tuesday 21 November 2006 @ 3:44 pm

Karen Schneider’s topping macaroons with them, while Cocoon developer Gianugo Rabellino is crushing them into pesto in a marble mortar. (Gianugo’s blog, by the way, is not the Italian subsidiary of Elsevier, so put the torches and pitchforks down.) I wanted to toss some into our first post-e-coli spinach the other night, but found we didn’t have any and used crushed walnuts instead. I don’t know whether the mountain pine beetle, now marching on Edmonton from the north, threatens the simple pine nut, but I sure hope not, because walnuts are no substitute.

    I think any pine nuts you’re crushing for pesto now will be safe from the MPB. That’s a thought though – harvest all the Jack pine and Lodgepole pine seeds you can before the beetle gets your local pine trees. I think you’d find them rather small, however.

    Cheers, kat
