2 Cents: National Pistachio Day

Central PA Live

Looking for a healthy snack? Today, reach for a handful of pistachios and crack open those shells! It’s National Pistachio Day which means you can indulge!

February 26 is set aside each year to celebrate the nut which has been a part of American cuisine since the 1880s.

Pistachio trees grow well in hot, dry climates, which makes them very popular in the middle east.

The nuts are high in vitamin B-6, copper, and protein.

You can enjoy pistachios by eating them straight out of the shell, in gelato, or maybe on a salad.
