In and Out of Shell

Earlier I mentioned I dislike all kind of nuts. I gotta take back my words because I ♥ pistachio nuts very much (I totally forgotten about my favourite nut because I only get to eat it once a year - I'm too stingy to buy, as it is superb expensive)!

We received a huge pack of pistachio nuts during the recent Chinese New Year. Little Chi and I can't stop munching on it but the downside is, pistachio has hard shell and I experienced pain on my thumb and index finger afterwards. So how to eat with ease? >> Click on the photo to find out~~:)
How not to break your polished fingernails when eating pistachio nut?

This is supposed an old trick but I only realized it now. I'm so slow, haha :p

    1. I think there are those shell-less pistachio nuts selling in the market, but I think they taste not as good as the original ones.. ;)

  2. I love pistachios too. I have a packet at home. Must eat them soon. Maybe you can use something like a spoon to open the shell. For me, I usually use my fingers.

  3. I think pistachios have such tricky shells to prevent us from gorging ourselves and destroying our bank balance! :) I love them, too.

  5. All nuts must come in hard shells. The worst shells are from Almond and Walnuts! It is strange that you disliked most nuts!

  20. Hi Yvonne, ha ha, couldn't help smiling read of 'your being stingy..."....I guess it must be expensive?
    These nuts can be addictive, eat one sure eat 10! Its quite cheap where we are but I prefer more peanuts.....the ones where you steamed them.
    And yes, these pistachios are nail breakers. Good to have at get togethers.....my wife will buy when we have friends over, and they chat and gossip while breaking and eating these nuts.
    I will eat, but let my wife peel for me, ha ha.
    Have a nice day....

  29. I am not really a fan of pistachio nuts, but I love almonds! There's a half packet of pistachio nuts from Chinese New Year, I've just peeled off the shells a few days ago, and keeping the nuts for my cookie baking, since nobody wants to eat them! If you are nearby, you can help me finish the nuts! :)
