Parmesan Encrusted Pine Nuts
I recently visited a fancy restaurant that served Parmesan encrusted pine nuts in their Caesar salad. This is my near-perfect attempt to replicate these delicious salad toppers. The salad consisted of romaine lettuce, shredded Parmesan cheese, dressing, mixed croutons, and these pine nuts. They are sweet, savory, nutty, and delicious.

The syrup is partially caramelized when it is at a full rolling boil, and the syrup around the edge of the pan barely starts to turn brown (carmel) in color.
