Step 1: Preparing the Pistachios• 2 cups raw pistachios
• 4 to 6 cups water
• 1 tbsp onion granules
• 1 tbsp garlic granules
• 1 1/2 tbsp Chili Powder
• 1/2 tsp cayenne
• 3 tbsp maple sugar
To prepare the pistachios, soak them in water for 3 to 4 hours to soften. Strain, reserving the pistachios and discarding the liquid.
To add the seasonings, place the pistachios in a mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients and toss well.
Note: We used this recipe for the Chili Powder.
Step 2: Dehydrating the Pistachios
To complete the recipe, set the dehydrator at 115°F (45°C). Spread an even layer of pistachios on the dehydrator trays, leaving room for air circulation. Continue to dehydrate for 7 to 10 hours or until crisp.
Store the pistachios in a sealed container and refrigerate to retain crispness.
