Crack Hard Pistachios With a Garlic Press
Most pistachios are not that difficult to open, but from time to time you will come across one that simply does not crack under the onslaught of dexterous fingers. You can use a nutcracker, but if you don’t have one, you can use a garlic press.
The video above will guide you through the process, but it’s a pretty simple technique. Just place the thrust nut in the press and push hard. The shell will open and you will find a new use for the previously disposable device.
