Pistachios

Have never tried making Mortadella before so could you advise, would I use salted or unsalted Pistachios?

Here is a good thread to look at, I believe its also posted here someplace but not sure. In his post he said he used locally grown so I am thinking they where unsalted.

That's on this site here : http://wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.ph ... mortadella

I don't think the amount of salt in the nuts would make a great deal of difference in the recipe.

Could wash them anyway (if salted is the cheaper option?) but just wondered if there was any particular need for either option. Thanks guys

This is my Venison Mortadella I made recently, I used unsalted Pistachios.

Irdeer that mortadella looks great. I've always used salted pistachios in mine, but I don't think it makes much difference which you use.

Cheers,

Wow that looks great Mortadella. I use roasted unsalted pistachios that way I do not end up with to salty a Mortadella. A few peppercorns and coriander seeds go in mine as well.
Do no harm. Margerine is the biggest food crime

Good to hear different methods and rationales.
