I bought prepackaged pine nuts and to my suprise, I found bugs in it. The expensive price of the pine nuts make me a bit hesitant to throw it out (about 6 euros for 90 grams ish).
My question is, can i use pine nuts after washing? could it be possible that the bug laid eggs inside the nuts? How would I identify those eggs to remove?
Here is a picture of the bug I found:
I went back to the store and complained. They gave me a fresh batch of pine nuts, so problem solved.
