How To Harvest Turkish Pistachios
The Turkish Antep pistachio tree is a very sensitive tree. The branches of the tree are very brittle and weak. The force to be applied on the pistachio branch can easily break the pistachio branch. For this reason, it is necessary to be very careful while pruning trees and harvesting pistachios. If the pistachios are collected by hitting the tree, the tree branches can be damaged. This causes the next year’s harvest to be low.
The unique oil contained in pistachio gives it a distinct flavor. Pistachios, which can be eaten with or without shell, can also be eaten by salting and roasting.
How To Roast Turkish Antep Pistachios
The most consumed form of this fruit is actually roasted and salted pistachios. Before starting the roasting stage, it is necessary to separate the pistachios from their red shells. The easiest way is to soak pistachios in warm water. In this way, the shells are softened. Softened pistachios are peeled by means of a large perforated sieve and the shells are sifted and passed to the bottom.
These peeled pistachios are dried under the sun. If sun drying is not possible or the amount of product is too high, drying can also be done in special machines. After this stage, the peanuts are cracked.
Pistachios are naturally grown 55 percent naturally and 45 percent covered. In the past, workers used to crack the 45 percent covered peanuts with wooden hammers. Now, thanks to modern machines, cracking and pistachio crushing operations are performed.
Pistachios to be roasted are pickled with their salted water. They pickled with salt are kept for a while. Thus, the taste of the salt penetrates into the pistachio.
