Not just a sidekick for ice cream or a casual snack, pistachios have literally burst out of their shells in the culinary world, and we’re here to crack open their full potential.

So, pull up a chair as we dive deep into the topic and share our California Grown Pistachio Brittle recipe that’s great for the holiday season ahead.
These little green nuts are power-packed with nutrients. They’re heart-healthy, waist-friendly, and loaded with antioxidants. Pistachios are a complete protein – meaning they provide all of the nine amino acids that our bodies don’t naturally produce.
Experts believe pistachios trees were first planted in California in the early 1880s. The Golden State’s sun-kissed orchards are pistachio paradise. It’s here that the perfect combination of soil, sun, and science come together to create the ideal growing conditions for these nuts. California farmer’s dedication is as deep-rooted as the trees they tend, and every pistachio is a testament to their tireless work.
Sure, you can sprinkle them on salads, but why stop there? From Pistachio-Crusted Chicken Milanese to velvety pistachio sauces, these nuts are made for much more than munching.
