How to Toast Pistachios. It’s easy and quick, plus it brings out the flavour.
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.

- 2 cups shelled pistachios
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
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.
Remove from oven and transfer to a plate immediately.
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
Let the pistachios cool and then you can store them.
They taste amazing in baking recipes when they are toasted.
You can just munch on them though. Perfectly acceptable.
Serve with a big old Grab Some Nuts Day smile!
So simple and so good. Everyone should toast their nuts every single day if you ask me.
