If you’ve ever made your own homemade nut butter, then you should try pistachio butter. Everything you love about pistachios now in a spreadable form.
Are you ready to put $20 in your food processor and get excited about it? Then let’s make some roasted pistachio butter! I ground up nearly a pound of roasted pistachios, which are not cheap, in order to make homemade pistachio butter. All in the effort to help you eat as much green food as possible in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. It’s more of a brown-green, but close enough.
If you like this recipe, stay turned for an upcoming post featuring this delicacy in the ingredient list ;-). In the meantime, spread it on toast, make a pistachio butter + jelly sandwich, blend it in a smoothie, or just dig in with a spoon. How would you enjoy it?
