Pistachios, which contain 53.7 percent fat, are a beautiful and delicious nut, but the salted variety should not be used for dessert recipes. Wonderfully flavorful, bright green pistachios from Sicily can be ordered shelled and unsalted from Keenan Farms and from Kalustyan’s. My favorite pistachio nuts come from Iran and are also carried by Kalustyan’s.
