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
- Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 250°F.
- 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.
- Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
