In Step 5, the residual heat from the pan heats the garlic. This technique reduces the chance of burning the garlic!

Wash and dry all produce.* In a large pot, add 12 cups water and 2 tsp salt. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add pine nuts to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Remove pan from heat and transfer pine nuts to a plate. Set aside.
