Purchasing
If you can, buy pine nuts from the bulk-foods section of your grocery store. You can buy only what you need for the recipe.
Planned-Overs
When you end up with extra chicken broth, pour what’s left into an ice-cube tray. After the cubes are frozen, package them in a plastic freezer bag. Next time you need a dash of chicken broth, you can pop a frozen cube into your pan!
