Has anyone else dealt with this? Okay, background: Two days ago I went to Winco (employee owned competitor to Costco in my area) and noticed their prices for pine nuts were about half of fred meyer. I wanted to make a cilantro pesto for pasta so I picked some up. The Pesto was fantastic, but a few hours after I ate it my mouth filled with a bitter taste. Didn't think much of it until the hubby mentioned the same problem. Google searches and confusion later I discovered articles on pine mouth dotting the internet.
Considering the peeps on this board are more likely to eat nuts and the like than most of my frozen meal and fast food loving friends, I figured it might have come up. It seems to be linked to a Chinese species of pine nuts and s protein in them that binds to.the taste buds. So, my questions:
-have you ever dealt with it?
-how did you get rid of it?
-where did you by them?
-how long did it last?
-anything you experienced the articles didn't cover?
