Can the cyanide in Almonds give you a stomach ache?

Only the bitter variety, called flowering almond and planted decorative purposes, has sufficent cyanide to harm you. The bitter almond has a pink flower. The sweet almond tree has white blooms and the fruit contains no cyanide. The nut has a strong bitter taste and it is dificult to ingest more than a single one.

How long does it take to toast pine nuts?

It obviously depends on the method and equipment, but generally only 2-3 minutes. The best way is simply to put them in a pan, dry, over medium heat and shake them gently as they brown. The built-in oil content in the nuts makes it a quick process. Important: There are literally about 15 seconds from the time they look perfect until they begin to burn, so the best approach is to stand right there without taking your eye off it.
