Pistachios are a popular snack and an integral element of many recipes around the world. With their wonderful taste, delightful crunchy texture, and proven health benefits, pistachios truly have it all. Aznut’s roasted California pistachios are carefully harvested before they are hand sorted and selected to ensure only the best nuts are used. Once they are sorted, the pistachios then undergo a process of roasting and salting, to enhance the buttery flavors and crunchy qualities. Finally ready, they are once again sorted and separated, then carefully bagged to ensure there is no damage in transit. This careful attention to detail guarantees that Aznut's products arrive at your door in pristine condition!
One of the oldest and highly regarded nuts, the pistachio has been cultivated by man for thousands of years. Originally grown in the middle east, the popularity of the delicious pistachio grew rapidly, and the cultivation of its trees followed. Thanks to unmitigated demand, all of Asia, the Mediterranean, and the warmer parts of America, now grow pistachios.
Perfect for a multitude of culinary practices, recipes, and flavor profiles, we love adding pistachios to our meals. The perfect snack on their own, pistachios also makes an excellent trail mix when paired with various dried nuts, seeds, and chocolate. A healthy alternative to the traditional crouton, these savory nuts are great sprinkled over fresh green salads. Pureed with olive oil and a handful of fresh herbs, they are transformed into a delicious creamy salad dressing. Delightful when paired with sweets, pistachios make a great topping for ice cream sundaes, cakes, and pastries. No matter what you combine them with, pistachios add a truly delightful taste and crunch to so many dishes, be they sweet or savory!
