Riding the Pine
As you know, we here at Endless Simmer are effing obsessed with pine nuts. OK, maybe it’s just me, but I know there are more of you out there! So, Endless Simmer is embarking on a high-tech research project to chronicle every single dish that can be made with pine nuts. You’ll see the results in the near future on ES, but first, we need your help.
Here’s the deal: We’re holding a Pine Nut Recipe Contest.
Send us your very best pine nut recipe, and you could win a free subscription to La Cucina Italiana magazine! Only the best of the best will take it home, so be sure to bring it. Here are the rules/standards:
– All recipes must be original. It’s OK if you’ve already featured it on your blog, but no Cindy McCain-style recipes please.
– The crazier/more creative, the better. You’re probably not going to win by telling us how great pine nuts are mixed with basil and spread on pasta. But if you make soup, pies, bread, or biscuits with pine nuts, that’s more like it.
– Send photos if you have them. Will definitely improve your chances.
– Email the recipes this a-way, with the subject line “Pine Nuts”
I dreamt about Cindy McCain last night….
I still don’t understand what pine nuts add to recipe and am excited to get some ideas.. aren’t they just that annoying crunchy thing in our soft and creamy foods?
Now you are just trying to start a fight, vio
i think this may inspire me to purchase my first installment of pine nuts
How fun, you already know I love them! Look for my recipe coming asap!
I have to say I am very impressed & intrigued by the pine nut butter & gelee. It was a totally novel take (for me) on pine nuts, basil & polenta all of which I love.
