February 26th is World Pistachio Day, here's how to celebrate
Heart of the Desert Pistachios
If you don’t have your own pistachio tree, no worries, these pistachios are just a click away. Check out these home grown pistachios that come in so many varieties. Some are simply unsalted and roasted in the shell. Others are garlic and green chili flavored or red chili flavored. You could go all out and try the lemon lime flavor.
If prefer to order from Amazon, this burlap bag of nuts would make a great gift or buy them for yourself to munch on.
If you have a hard time opening up the shells of your nuts, they've got just the tool for you: a pistachio opener! They're making it easy to enjoy your nuts. Not only do we love the fun name of this company but their online store is amazing. And all with a flat rate shipping cost so you can order pounds at a time.

Make some pistachio ice cream
If you don’t want to just eat them straight out of the shell, you can use them to make incredible pistachio ice cream or blondies with pistachios, or even date and pistachio bars. Share them with a friend so everybody can get in on the celebration. This will ensure that Pistachio Day is put on everyone’s calendar for next year. And if you’ve never tried pistachio ice cream, which by the way was invented by James Parkinson of Philadelphia in the 1940’s, this is the day to do it! Support your local ice cream shop or make your DYI with this recipe.
