Expert Tips

  • Groves of pistachio trees thrive in California, New Mexico, Iran, Italy and Turkey. Store pistachios sealed in an airtight container in a cool spot; freeze them for longer storage. Look for pistachios, already shelled in your grocery's produce or bulk food areas.
  • During winter holidays, use red-dyed pistachios alone or in combination with natural green pistachios.
