one of those foodie moments


Hands up if you can identify this little goodie!

I had one of those "Oh my god!", foodie moments when I tried one of these at the farmers market this morning.

If you don't know - have a guess.

Darn it - too easy :)

...and was it good for you too?

Other than eating them fresh, does anyone have any tips about using fresh pistachios (instead of the older variety)?

ohhhhh....we bought a bag yesterday at the Vic market too!!

We are absolute Pistachio fans, and couldn't pass the short lived opportunity

I have never used fresh Pistachio's before either. One obvious idea that came to mind first was Pistachio Ice-cream...

We also remember a Food Lovers guide episode on these little morsels that offers some ideas;

Guess what, yesterday I just happened to make some White chocolate & Pistachio biscuits which were incredible, the recipe has been posted.

Ahh all these delicious dairy-full foods to taunt a dairy-free girl! :)

I was going to say 'I'm a little clueless, but is it a pistacio nut?' I'm feeling a little smug about my foodie skillz now, hee!

Oh, lucky you, fresh pistachios are beautiful - but warning, they don't last long. I bought a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge bag about three years ago, ate a third fresh from the pod, used another chunk in a Moroccan-ish rice pilaf and then three days later had to throw the rest out as they'd turned into furry little monsters (despite being kept in the fridge). I hated the waste.
