Pistachio question

Recommended Posts

Shadawbi

I accidentally bought a bag of pistachios that are UNsalted:ahhhhh: I was wondering, can I grind them up to make a flour to use in something? Has anyone ever tried it?

Shadawbi,

I haven't cooked with them ground up as a flour but I have done so with other nuts.

 

Here is a link using Pistachio flour.

Here's one using pistachios in different ways:

This recipe was down the page and sounds delicious:

Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto with Rosemary, Orange and California Pistachios

Have fun and let us know what worked out well, if you like, ok?

Make up a thick salt solution and water in a bowl. Dump the pistachios in the bowl, mix 'em around until they're coated well...then pour them into a colander to drain. Once they're drained spread them out on a newspaper to dry.

OR get another bag of salted and mix them together.

 

OR ......just eat them unsalted. They are actually quite tasty that way. And god knows we get plenty of salt in the remainder or our diet.

Couldn't you just sprinkle some salt over them?

 

Salt won't stick.

 

I like to buy unsalted mixed varieties and toss them in a bowl with some olive oil, garlic, rosemary, pepper and paprika then throw em' in the oven on 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. One of my favorite snacks.

If they're in a packet I'd imagine that wouldn't be too much of a problem. There was a line of crisps (potato chips) in the UK called Salt 'n' Shake where the salt came in a separate packet and you just shook it over.

 

Fine, you might not get the full magical stickiness you'd get with something that's been industrially salted in a factory but I think you'd still get a perfectly edible and tasty result.
