Pistachios add taste and a beautiful, natural, green colour to your dishes. You can even use them in pesto or nut butter.
Heat up the oven to 150°C and toast the pistachios for 12-15 minutes until they turn a light brown colour.
Make a sugar syrup by bringing the water with the sugar to the boil.
When reaching 121°C, remove from the heat, and poor over the pistachios. Allow to cool.
Use a food processor or grinder to make a powder from the pistachios.
Add the almond powder, the oil and the liquid bitter almond and blend until you obtain a smooth pistachio paste.
Keep the pistachio paste in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
