Are the pistachios meant to be strained from the custard?

So it doesn't specifically say to strain the pistachios but is that what is meant by straining, in addition to straining out any cooked egg bits? Are the nuts to be tossed? Seems a shame as pistachios are quite expensive. I imagine the texture might be confusing with the nuts in the custard but that's a lot of pistachios to just throw away.

Yes, it’s all strained out. The nuts only infuse the liquid, they’re not meant to stay in the custard.

That's a lot of nuts to throw out. Ok, thanks for taking the time to respond.
