Pistachio questions

BangorDin | Nov 8, 2006 11:04 PM

I have a lot of roasted, salted pistachios. Great snacks, but can I use them in cakes, candy, ice cream, veggie pates, risotto, all the recipes I see? I have never seen raw pistachios--are they poison, like raw cashews?
Also, is there any possible use for the hard shells? Compost? Kindling?
