  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spread the pistachios evenly on a rimmed cookie sheet. Place in the preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes. Start checking on them early, just in case your oven has hot spots. You can give the a quick turn halfway through if you like but it's not required.
  • Once the pistachios are toasted and smell fragrant you can remove them from oven and transfer to a clean tea towel.
  • In order to remove the skins from the pistachios all you have to do is rub them with the towel while they are still warm. The pieces will slide right off. Just remember, it's easiest to do this when the pistachios are warm. (so many jokes, so little time)
  • Let the pistachios cool before storing them.
  • Serve with a big old Grab Some Nuts Day smile!
