    They are indeed lovely. The shells become annoying after a while though.

    Pretty conclusive.

    The pistachio (Pistacia vera L., Anacardiaceae or sometimes Pistaciaceae) is a small tree native to mountainous regions of Iran, Turkmenistan and western Afghanistan, that produces an important culinary nut.

    Thanks for the homework, but we've already got to the bottom of it.

    Mmm I love em, so very addictive. Can you buy them pre-shelled? That would be all kinds of awesome.

    That's like half the fun of the nut taken away! It tastes so much better when you have to gnaw away at the casing for 10 minutes before you get the sweet green reward.

    Pistachio ice cream and gelato is most tasty.

    I get them from one of those homeopathic lentil and herbal earwax dissolving ointment selling places. Can't remember the name, but most towns have one.

    Bags of cashews and pistachios are my favourite movie snacks. Love 'em both, but pistachios edge it. I've had bags of them without shells, and they're nowhere near as good. The split second breaks you have to take to open them keeps them tasting great, rather than just being able to shovel handfuls of them in your mouth until you're fucking sick of them.

    Amazing stuff.

    Used to get these all the time for pasta. They were like 1.20 each. Now it's around 5 a bag at Tesco :(

    Could probably roast/ salt them if wanted to also.

    This, but actually better if it's honey roasted cashews and peanuts.

    But Pistachios are a close second.

    I used to know a girl who could not pronouce Pistachio - no word of a lie. Even if we broke it down for her, she could say it then: Piss. Tach. Io. But put then together and she said Pisnashnoo. Utterly bizarre but very cute.
