Pine Nuts

Does anyone know where you can purchase pine nuts at a reasonable cost? I used to buy them at Costco for $11.99 then they went to $19.99 which I thought was crazy - however I was there last week and they are now $34.99/bag. Yikes!

  1. I hear that the price of pine nuts are high everywhere right now

    I have read that the crop was small in China last year and the European crop was infested with beetles.

    1. Pine nuts are definitely increasing in price. Three spots to call and ask their price though, which as I recall being relatively reasonable are:

      Jasmine Foods:
      Afra Market: (604) 987-7454
      Parthenon: (604) 733-4191

      Good luck!

        I get mine at Parthenon too but haven't bought any lately.

          Thanks for the heads-up.

          I cried when I saw the revised price. Tripled from last year!
