This was passed down to me from my grandfather – and I’ve passed it along to my kids.
The love of pistachios.
Grandpa used to get the red ones and they would leave my hands stained, but it was always worth it.
They’re not red anymore (you can find out why here if you’re interested) but pistachios remain the greatest snack in the world. Except for the ones that won’t open.
I always struggled with these “unopenable nuts” until the infinite wisdom of the internet shone a glorious nut-cracking light on my snacking inefficiencies.
If these are on the snack menu for the big game (or any other get together) rest assured you’ll get your fair share, since you know how to open the impossible nuts. In just 23 seconds, you too, will unlock the secret of the pistachio.
