what to do with fresh pistachios?

my parents took a field trip to a pistachio farm, and I got a giant bag of fresh pistachios, right off the tree. any ideas of interesting things to do with them, other than just eating them out of hand? thanks!

  1. like you would almonds as in an Amandine. or Hazelnuts, doing a liquour or dessert .

    but out of hand is good enough

    or blanch, and slice into roasting vegetables.

    1. I once had an excellent recipe for pistachio merange cookies - let me see if I can find a link:
      this is pretty close, found this one:

      1. over thick yogourt with rose-saffron syrup!

        1. Indian spiced pistachios! Here's one recipe, they're great for holidays:

            I've made this a few times always to very positive reactions.
