Guess how much this tiny amount of pine nuts cost?

I will give you a hint and clue you in that they are $39.99 per pound.


  1. If that is 2 ounces of pine nuts, about $5. Yikes!

  2. Why are pine nuts so expensive (other than the fact that they're delicious)?

  3. Shawn overshot a bit, because he mis-guessed the weight. I'm guessing they are so expensive because they are hard to harvest. I first had pine nuts in elementry school, when my friend's mother's boyfriend brought us them still in the pine cone. They were delicious but hard to access.
