how to roast pinon nuts on stove top

Roasting piñon pine nuts on a stove top is also a great way to enhance their flavor and aroma. Here's a simple method you can use to roast piñon pine nuts on a stove top:


  • Fresh piñon pine nuts
  • Salt (optional)


  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet or pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the fresh piñon pine nuts to the skillet and stir them frequently to prevent them from burning.
  3. Roast the piñon pine nuts for 5-10 minutes or until they turn golden brown and emit a nutty aroma. Keep an eye on them to ensure they don't burn.
  4. After the allotted time, remove the skillet from the heat and let the piñon pine nuts cool for a few minutes.
  5. If desired, sprinkle some salt over the roasted nuts and mix well.

Roasted piñon pine nuts can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for several weeks. They can be enjoyed as a snack, added to salads or other dishes, or used in baking. Note that it's important to only use piñon pine nuts from a trusted source, as there are some species of pine nuts that can cause digestive issues if consumed.
