It is almost shabes. My folks will be coming for dinner in less than an hour. The last way I should have spent the last forty-five minutes is decorticating half a cup of pistachios, but just look at them! It really makes a difference, in color and flavor. And I had to. I just had no choice.
To Decorticate Pistachios
Place pistachios in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Allow them to rest about five minutes, and drain. Use your fingers to squeeze and rub off the skins.
