Pine nuts, which are harvested from pinecones, can be used in both savory and sweet dishes. Store them in the refrigerator for up to three months; freeze them for up to nine. Swiss Chard, a member of the beet family, comes in several varieties, which can be used interchangeably. Look for chard with bright-green leaves and no brown spots.
