Are pine nuts considered raw?

I use a little of these when I make my pesto sauce and I have always wondered about them. Are they considered raw?


  • I think that they are raw, but correct me anyone if I’m not right.

  • Yes most pine nuts are raw, unless they say Toasted. But beware, most pine nuts come from China!! But as with any nut/seed out of the shell it is truly not ‘as raw’ as it could be as nature intended.

  • Somewhere today, I read a recipe that said to ‘sprout your pine nuts’. did they simply mean to just soak them? They don’t sprout, do they??
