How to Toast Pistachios | Happy Grab Some Nuts Day!

Welcome to the blog. Today is a very special day. We’re celebrating Grab Some Nuts Day. It’s an actual food holiday. Who knew?

When I found out Grab Some Nuts Day was coming up I knew I had to celebrate with some of my nutty friends. So I put together a small group of bloggers who wanted to grab some nuts with me. I mean who wants to grab nuts all by themselves right?

We all came up with some nut packed recipes for you to celebrate this hilariously weird food holiday. I love that I have friends who appreciate a good laugh, and the opportunity for nutty puns. These folks have kept me giggling through a rough week. Thank goodness for nutty friends.

If you appreciate nut humour, and lots of inappropriate nut jokes be sure to visit all the other participants. Grab Some Nuts Day should be a yearly event if you ask me. We have a whole year to work on our nuts before the next event. We should all get cracking on that.

Serves: 2 cups of Toasted Pistachios
Ingredients
  • 2 cups shelled pistachios
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread the pistachios evenly on a rimmed cookie sheet. Place in the oven for about 6 to 8 minutes They will become very fragrant when they are done.
  3. Remove from oven and transfer to a plate immediately.
  4. If you want to remove the skins from the pistachios place them on a clean towel and rub them. The pieces will slide right off. It's easiest to do this when the pistachios are warm. (so many jokes, so little time
  5. Let the pistachios cool and then you can store them.
  6. They taste amazing in baking recipes when they are toasted.
  7. You can just munch on them though. Perfectly acceptable.
  8. Serve with a big old Grab Some Nuts Day smile!

    I just knew I could count on you to produce some salty warm nutty goodness! Oh baby… roasty, toasty for the win!
    I also agree that this has to be an annual event. When else do I get a chance to be completely perverted without shame? 😉
    Thanks for spearheading this for us, Kim!

      Ha, someone had to do the warm salty version right. Bah ha ha.

      I had a blast doing this. The facebook group was a riot. Kept me totally distracted which I really needed.

      Happy to spearhead nuts. It’s my thang. xx

    I’m so disappointed I couldn’t join this year, Kim, but all my nutty jokes and not-so-subtle innuendos will keep for next year! These photos are beautiful. I wish I could reach through my screen and grab your toasty nuts. I’d love to have them in my mouth. They’re probably super firm, warm and salty. Just how I like ’em.

    I can’t say that I have ever toasted pistachios…but these look so delicious that I might just need to get in the kitchen and make a batch today. Great tips…and amazing photos! :-)
