Toasting nuts brings out their flavor and can be done in the oven or a pan according to the nut you want toast.
 
Pine nuts
Put pine nuts in a nonstick pan, making sure they are in single layer and are all in contact with the bottom of the pan. Place the pan on the heat and stir with a wooden spoon. Toast until amber in color. Toasted pine nuts give a nice crunch to pasta and salads. They are also to make pesto and various pastries.

Almonds
Arrange the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a preheated 350°F (180°C). Shake the baking sheet regularly and toast until amber.  Almonds are used in pastry recipes, as well as the preparation of recipes with chicken, vegetables and fish fillets.

Nuts
We recommend toasting other nuts in the oven as you would almonds. Oven-roasting makes it easier to remove the thin skin on nuts like hazelnuts.
