I thought I’d share this dead-simple recipe for pistachio macadamia nut butter that I created earlier this week. I sampled a tasty pistachio butter from Wilderness Poets at my at my food co-op recently and was inspired to make some at home from the big bag of roasted, salted shelled pistachios from Costco that I had on hand. Fearing the result might be too salty, I used half unsalted macadamia nuts. A pure pistachio butter would look much more green. This whipped up easily in the Vitamix (unlike some of my experiments with almond butter) and turned out salty but not too salty and very tasty, definitely an experiment I’ll run again.
- 1½ cups shelled, roasted, salted pistachio nuts
- 1½ cups roasted, unsalted macadamia nuts
- Combine nuts in Vitamix or other high-speed blender, blend
