Pine Nuts-Pesto

Looking to purchase some pine nuts, as my basil plants are looking ready to go. Any suggestions where to purchase? I was thinking Lawrence West?

      Thanks. I realize they are not inexpensive. Would prefer to pay more for quality, and proper stored.

        If you have a costco membership, they have a huge bag, very good quality, and stays in the refrigerator for ages.

            I find that using walnuts is a cheaper and very legitimate substitute.

              just returned from costco, 22.99 for 680 grams. Thought the walnut option was viable, but went with the pine nuts. Going to follow traditional method, toast nuts or not?
