To toast nuts, arrange one kind of shelled nut in a single layer on a dry baking sheet in a 325-degree oven. Toast almonds, walnuts, pecans or cashews for 10 to 15 minutes, and pine nuts or pistachios for 4 to 6 minutes, until lightly golden and aromatic, stirring every 5 minutes (2 to 3 minutes for small nuts). Toast several cupfuls of nuts (one variety at a time), then store in jars in the refrigerator so you can garnish fruit and vegetable salads, cooked fruit or hot cereal.
