I have been craving REALLY GOOD turkish pistachios lately (well, ok, I always crave them).
The best I've had in recent times (apart from a trip to Turkey) are the house brand at Kalustyan's in NYC. By the way, if you don't know this store, you should. They have things that are hard to find elsewhere:
The problem is that their shipping charges are too high: UPS ground shipping on a 4lb bag is $11.95 (UPS charges $6.18 for this, so they're basically marking shipping up by 100%).
So my question is: Is there anywhere local where I can get really good and really fresh turkish pistachios? I've found some at the middle eastern store on Mission near Caeser Chavez, but they aren't as fresh and great as I like.
