I want to smoke some Pistachio's to make Smoked Pistachio Ice Cream. As I have never smoked nuts before, what are your wood recommendations for this? I was thinking about Cherry, something to give it a light, sweet smoke flavor.
To roast raw Pistachio's, I have found that 250°F for 1-1/2 to 2 hours seems to be the norm. I figured I would put them in the smoker instead of the oven.
I will be sure to make two batches of iced cream, one roasted, one smoked.
