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.

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!
