Homemade Pistachio Butter

October 1, 2013
I’ve posted several recipes now featuring my all-time favourite pistachio butter. Every time I do people ask me where I buy it. To answer your question I do not buy it anywhere, I make it! I’ve actually done a post on pistachio butter but it was one of my first when people were either a) not reading my blog or b) turned off by my atrocious pictures. I figured it was time for a re-do.
Homemade Pistachio Butter
Like most food bloggers I have an obscene collection of nut butters. Most I make myself but occasionally i do treat myself to some of the pre-made stuff. I’m looking at you Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter…Pistachio Butter is probably the only nut butter I have yet to find on store shelves. It’s all good though since I own a food processor and occasionally have the patience to shell 2 cups worth of pistachios. For the record you can definitely buy shelled pistachios, they are just pricey and I am usually too cheap.

Pistachio Butter is now a staple in my kitchen and frequently finds its way into ice cream, on pancakes and of course into my morning oats. I do have a favourite way to eat it though, slathered onto a ripe banana. Pistachio + banana is a winning combination. So get over your fear of cheating on peanut butter and try this pistachio butter! You can thank me later…

    You can get more information on all these medicines either on the internet or at a medicine shop.
    Since they’re one and the same drug, you can expect the following adverse reactions:.
    Firstly, there can be many names of Viagra Online products.
    A recent study reveals that more than 30 million males
    in US are suffering from ED(Erectile Dysfunction) and
    only 16 million actually opted for a treatment and the result of Viagra has been significant.
    Sildenafil Citrate, one of the key components of Kamagra, was the first
    active ingredient approved by the FDA for treating the conditions of
