If my home roasted pistachios are not crunchy, do they need to roast longer or at a higher degree? I did 15 minutes at 300.

Never go by time when roasting nuts. Always go by smell.

When you smell toasted nuts, get them off the heat immediately, and out of the hot pan.

    oh, and for crunchy, you may want a longer time at lower heat to drive off the moisture – Joe Aug 9 at 19:04
