Tips from the chef:
You can enrich this flavour by adding chopped pistachios.
If you can't find already made pistachio grain, you can make it yourself.
To prepare the pistachio grains as pastry chefs do, you just need a good bag of toasted pistachios, possibly not too salty.
Let's start with shelling our pistachios and let them blanch in water for about 2 minutes. This is a procedure that will allow you to remove the skin very easily.
Once you have removed the skin, let them dry for 15 minutes on absorbent paper. Using a mixer, reduce the pistachios to powder or grain. You will have to carry out this with the utmost attention. Run the mixer for few seconds then pulse it. Pistachios burn very easily.
Once the pistachios are grained, spread it on a baking sheet and let it dry in an open oven, at 350°F degrees for about 5 minutes. Once dried well, you can put the pistachios on top of your gelato cups.
