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.




Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

  • Whisk orange juice, five-spice powder and salt in a large bowl. Add pistachios; toss to coat. Place on a large rimmed baking sheet; spread in an even layer.

  • 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.
