Sicilian Candied Pistachios

Tastes like a summer Italian night, sweet citrus, and fragrant spices. If a nut could be a cannoli, this would be it. Feel free to swap pistachios for any other nuts you may have on hand.


Bowl #1

1 cup [145g] roasted, unsalted pistachios

Bowl #2

1 egg white

1/3 cup [80g] light brown sugar

1 teaspoon orange zest

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon fiori di Sicilia

Pinch of nutmeg

Pinch of salt



Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.


Whisk together all the ingredients in the second bowl.


Add in the pistachios and toss to combine.


Evenly spread the pistachio mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.


Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool on the pan. Once cooled, break up into pieces and store in a cool, dry place.
