Toasting Nuts

Toasted-pine-nutsToasting nuts is a technique that intensifies the flavor and deepens the color. Toasting may be done in the oven or on top of the stove. Usually, no oil or butter is used in the toasting process, although some recipes do call for some fat. Pecans, pine nuts, walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and peanuts are some of the many nuts and seeds that may be toasted for extra flavor.

To Toast Nuts on the Stove:
Heat nuts in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Stir and toss the nuts for 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. If using this method for smaller nuts and seeds, reduce the time to 2 to 3 minutes.
