A tasty candy brittle loaded with toasted, Diamond brand, Pistachios.
So, our house went on the market this past weekend and I’m already kind of over the whole process! In the last week I spent 2 days ticked off and not speaking to my husband (because I’m mature that way), 24 hours completely digging through every nook and cranny in our house de-junking, de-cluttering and cleaning, enlisting my best friend to clean out my pantry, and drinking lots of wine. We haven’t even had our house on the market for 2 days yet and the whole process is already stressing me out!
We are absolutely in one of those no-lose situations as we love where we are, our neighbors and our home, and we love the house that we’ve been looking at. If we did move it would only be a few miles down the road, if we don’t, we are totally happy. The house we have our eyes on has 2 acres of land (and a sunroom) which is something we’ve wanted for quite sometime. However, again, we have survived this long without land, and can survive even longer if things don’t happen with that other house. So needless to say, we are in one of those chaotic states of flux right now!
I have been cooking and relying on things that are making my life absolutely simplified. The last thing I need right now is added complexity. That’s why, when I found out that my friends at Diamond Nuts now carry raw, shelled, unsalted pistachios, I was thrilled. Anytime I have wanted to make something with Pistachios in it, I’ve had to go through the painstaking process of cracking each nut and shelling them myself. Diamond Nuts is the first company to do all that work for me with Pistachios! Day. Made.
I bookmarked this recipe from Taste of Home forever ago it seems but knew that Pistachios were kind of a pain in the rear, and I didn’t really want to go through the trouble to shell all the pistachios needed for the recipe. Thanks to Diamond Nuts, I was able to adapt this recipe and make it, without going through a whole bunch of trouble!
This Toasted Pistachio Toffee Brittle is one of those things where you’ll politely say you just want one small piece, then when no one is looking, you’ll go back into the kitchen and eat an entire half of pan worth of it…or so I’ve heard, ahem. It’s sweet, salty, crunchy and delicious all in one. I hope you enjoy it!
