Pinenuts really do come from the Pine tree and are one of the world's most ancient cultivated nuts - with a history that dates back over 5000 years. They grow all over the world, from Russia to Korea to Pakistan to the US, and a dozen other nations. However, due to the fact that the seed itself is tiny, and climate needed is extremely dangerous to live in, prices for this nut are a ways above other common treenuts like walnuts. Due to climate change, this nuts habitat has also been shrinking year after year, so prices have been creeping up with no way down for the last decade.
Regency's Jumbo grade Pinenuts are buttery smooth and great for cooking in pestos and Stir Fries, and equally tasty when snacking on directly. Try these Pinenuts to see what flavours have been missing from your common storebought variety.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
