I’ve always found pistachios to be absurdly addictive. Once I start eating them I have to tear myself away from the bowl or have someone hide it from me. Just imagine my problem when I came across this recipe. Roasted, salted pistachios are spiced up with some sweet heat and roasted for a second time. It gives the them a salty, sweet taste that takes them from fantastic to totally beyond delicious. In order to save my waistline I restrict myself to only making these for parties or to give away as gifts. This is the only way to guarantee that I won’t eat the whole bowl myself. The next time I am planning to make these is to take to a friend hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party. The green pistachios will be festive and fun, and the perfect gift to give away!
