Pistachios, Pistachios, Yummy Pistachios

While we were camped at Boot Hill, we went to Eagle Ranch where Heart of the Desert Pistachios are grown. We we took a tour of the orchard and learned how they harvest the nuts as well as the difference between male and female trees. We saw how the machines cleaned and sorted the nuts and how workers do a final sorting. Did you know as the nuts grow on the trees they crack their own shells? We saw the roasters where the nuts can be flavored. Our favorite were red chile seasoned ones. Eagle Ranch is home to 12,000 pistachio trees. We had a chance to talk to one of the owners who’s parents pioneered the pistachio industry in New Mexico. They even have 24,000 grapevines and make pistachio flavored wine. While we were on the tour we ran into our neighbors from the campground. We really have met some nice people on this journey.
