How to use up leftover pine nuts

  • Pine nuts & rosemary brittle
    Toast a handful of pine nuts in a dry frying pan until lightly golden, then transfer to a bowl. Put 100g caster sugar in a frying pan over a medium-high heat to melt (don’t stir or it may crystallise). Cook until it turns toffee brown, then add the pine nuts with a pinch of salt and swirl the pan to coat. Pour the caramel onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper and scatter with a little finely chopped fresh rosemary. Break into shards when cool.
