Pistachios are my sister's favorite nut...she used to plant herself on my grandpa's lap and the two of them would polish off a bag in record time. I love 'em too but she's got a wicked addiction to the little green charmers. She's always thrilled to see a plateful of chocolate brownies sprinkled with chopped's my favorite form of bribery if I need to borrow something.  ;)

Right now sis needs a bit of cheering up so I think a jar of pistachio butter with a big bow on it will do the trick!  :)

Have you tried pistachio butter? Or maybe mixed in a few pistachios when you're making another nut or seed butter? What's your favorite pistachioed recipe? If you could receive any treat in a jar right now, what would it be?  :)

  1. I love pistachios- would like to make a vegan pistachio icecream some day. They are quite expensive here, or I'd definitely have made pistachio butter by now! Thanks for the links- will check out Nina's blog, thanks :)

    1. I think a scoop of pistachio ice cream and a scoop of your banana ice cream would be a delicious double scoop! Or maybe pistachio and mango scoops...mmmmyes! :)

  2. I love snacking on pistachios; they serve as one of my favorite airline snacks. I have yet to try pistachio butter….and I wonder if a pistachio milk sounds good?
