Here is a simple method to roast pinon nuts:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Spread the pinon nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Make sure the nuts are not overcrowded, as this will affect their roasting and may result in unevenly roasted nuts.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast the pinon nuts for 10 to 15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. Check the nuts frequently and stir them occasionally to ensure even roasting and prevent burning.
Once the pinon nuts are roasted, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a bowl. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Note: You can also roast pinon nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir the nuts frequently to ensure even roasting and prevent burning. Roasting time may vary depending on the heat source and the size of the nuts.
Roasted pinon nuts can be enjoyed as a snack or used in various recipes, including salads, baked goods, and trail mixes. Store roasted pinon nuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for up to a month.
