Pinon nuts are very hard to find, and is thrilled to share them with you! They are similar to pignolia nuts, but are roasted to perfection in the shell. One taste and you will realize what the fuss for these pinon nuts is all about! Also known as Indian nuts, they make a delicious snack that is roasted and unsalted.

Enjoy Pinon Nuts

To crack pinon nuts, we recommend spreading them out on a small towel, and then using a rolling pin to go over the nuts, breaking open their shells. Our roasted pinon nuts are a perfect treat for snacking or using in your recipes. Try them tossed in salads or prepared with vegetables like cauliflower or asparagus. They complement chicken and fish dishes well, too. Pinon nuts add a great nutty crunch to rice, risotto, or pasta dishes, and are wonderful for preparing a pesto sauce. They are also delicious in cookies and other sweet treats.

Health Benefits of Pinon Nuts

A single serving of pinon nuts provides a rich source of nutrients that can improve heart health, boost energy levels and promote weight loss. Enjoying pinon nuts as a snack also does wonders for your immune system and vision. Pinon nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fats which are associated with lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol levels and reducing the risk for heart disease. They are also rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium that help transport oxygen and energize the body. A rare source of pinoleic acid, pinon nuts promote a feeling of fullness that has proven effective in weight management. Vitamin A and lutein support good vision by protecting the retina and preventing cataracts. Pinon nuts are also plentiful in antioxidants and vitamin C to improve the body’s natural defense system against colds and illnesses.

About Pinon Nuts

The name pinon is derived from the Spanish term for pine nut. Pinon nuts are produced by the main species of pine tree in the United States. Pinon nut trees (Pinus edulis) grow wild in the southwestern United States and are much more rare than pine nuts from Europe or Asia. A good crop of pinon is only produced once every three to seven years so they are far less abundant than other varieties of pine nuts. Pinon nuts tend to be larger than regular pine nuts and have a signature smooth and sweet buttery taste. Pinon nuts are sometimes referred to as pinyon nuts or pinion nuts.

“Amazing that so many products of your products are kosher!! My son sent Pinon nuts to his grandmother for her birthday. She told him about eating the nuts at the movies when she was a little girl. So great to find the nuts, kosher, and be able to send them to her!

“I contacted you last month, eagerly awaiting the arrival of Indian Nuts, as a present for my Dad's 90th Birthday. I was assured that you would have them by his birthday (as this is the ONLY present he wanted). Because of the hurricane, and power shortages, I had to wait a little longer, you promised, I had them for his birthday party! He was ecstatic!!! I bought 2 lbs. for him, but my stepmom made me take a pound home, because my father could not stop eating them. He said they were just as he had remembered as a child. I remember eating them when I was child as well. So, guess who's eating the other pound now!!! They are DELICIOUS!!!! Your service was exceptional, and your replying to my frantic letter was a relief! Thank you so much! I'll be back!”

“You guys are hilarious! From the sentiments in your emails to the quips on the box, ("What are you waiting for!? Crack'em open!") I look forward to ordering every time! Over the years, I've ordered my standards, Turkish Pistachios (ultimate concentrated flavor) and Indian nuts (hard to come by, ANY where), but this year, I tried my husband's favorite, Dates. The Zahiti's tasted as promised, less sweet , but zinging with date flavor! They'll be part of our new standard. Thank you so much for the sample of cashews, another of my husband's favorites. ”

“OMG!!! Thank you so much. This Thanksgiving will bring back my memories of spending time in the square in Santa Fe. Martin Sisnaros would tell me about his black pottery. He brought me fresh bread and piñon nuts. I have not been able to return but this year I wanted to get back a little of those smells. I am celebrating my experiences there. Happy Thanksgiving and we wish your family well. Bonnie”

“As promised, the nuts arrived in one day. The taste brings us back to the balcony at the Meadowbrook Theatre where my husband and I watched a marathon of James Bond movies while eating indian nuts (40+ years ago). We are happy to have found your website and will continue to purchase these delicious nuts from Nuts On Line. The customer service is outstanding. The business world would be in better shape if everyone followed your lead. You brought a smile to my face with every email. Thanks!”

“Indian nuts arrived just as promised. Had to turn on the front porch lights, but they DID arrive on time.
I'd love to say the nuts are awesome, but before I could get them opened, my wife confiscated them and told me I'd have to wait until Christmas. Oh well, I haven't had them since I was a little kid at Camp Nawakwa so I guess two more weeks won't hurt. I'm so looking forward to that nice sweet taste. A real pleasure doing business with you. Oh yes, just opening the box was a real trip. You folks must really enjoy your nutty work.
