Went to the store to boy ingredients for tonight’s salad.
Looked at a small bag of salad topping and thought it would add a nice crunch to my salad. Realised the bag contained plain sunflowerseeds, some pumpkin seeds and very few pinenuts. And they sure weren’t giving it away!
Sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds have a permanent home in my freezer, ready for duty when it’s time to make seed crackers. So I grabbed a bag of pine nuts and headed for home.
Mixed 100 ml of each kind (feel free to use 1 cup or half a cup instead if you aren’t a metric kind of gal or guy).
Put them in a pan over medium heat, roasted them while stirring slowly until they had some colour and started to smell nice.Took them of the heat.
This was enough for 2 small jars, one for me and one for my daughter who was visiting.
The whole operation took med 10 minutes from start to finish.
My salad topping contains a larger ratio of pine nuts and pumpkin seeds to the sun flower seeds (let’s face it, the sunflower seeds are there mostly to add bulk) and mine tastes way better due to the roasting process.
