    Interesting that just like “Korean grapes”, these come from a special “Korean pine tree”.

    I grew up eating these and “Korean Grapes”. (I grew up in New Mexico and Texas.) I don’t think there is anything particularly Korean about them. Pine nuts, aka piñon, do come from a pine tree. But I’m pretty sure that Costco is not importing them from Korea (but hey, I could be wrong….I haven’t read the package to see if they list the origin of their product.) They are native to North America and Europe as well as Asia.

    Just had to say something since all my Korean friends keep saying “Here, want some Korean Grapes?” LOL But I do really love both the “Korean Grapes” and piñon. And Korean food is my favorite. I can only cook KimChi Chigae right now, so I’ll be watching your vids to see if I can learn some more.
