  • 7 oz pistachios (200 g)


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a rolling boil, then add pistachios for 1 minutes only. Drain immediately and add to an ice bath to "shock" them and stop the cooking process. An ice bath is a bowl filled with cold water and ice cubes.
  2. Drain the pistachios, remove all the ice cubes and press them between your fingers or use your finger nails to remove the skins. This is an easy process.
  3. Add all peeled pistachios to a high speed blender or a food processor and blend/process until paste consistency. Scrape down the sides often.
  4. Enjoy with apple slices and store the rest in an airtight container in the fridge.
