“Chinese five-spice powder is a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns; it adds subtle flavor to these pistachios. Look for it in the spice section at the market or with other Asian ingredients. Omit the added salt if you use salted pistachios.”


    • 6 tablespoons orange juice
    • 6 tablespoons Chinese five-spice powder
    • 4 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 6 cups unsalted pistachios


  • 1 Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 250°F.
  • 2 Whisk orange juice, five-spice powder and salt in a large bowl. Add pistachios; toss to coat. Divide between 2 large rimmed baking sheets; spread in an even layer.
  • 3 Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
