Pistachios from Sicily, a treasure of Italian gastronomy.
Italy can boast of being one of the countries with the most gastronomic treasures in the world. Its varied territory, from the green north to the blue Mediterranean, along with its rich history are some of the reasons that explain the extraordinary variety and quality of the products that this generous land offers.
Wines, cheeses, oil, seafood, fish, fruits, vegetables... and pistachios! Yes, pistachios.
The culinary and economic value of the Italian pistachio is such that it is also known as “the Sicilian green gold” since it is on the northern island of Sicily where they have been cultivated since ancient times, probably introduced by the Arabs during the domination of the region in the 9th century.
The small town of Bronte, near Catania, is known for being the capital of pistachio. The climate, rich volcanic soil and altitude of the Bronte region give them a distinctive flavor and texture. Additionally, they are traditionally grown and harvested by hand, ensuring exceptional quality. These characteristics make Sicilian pistachios considered the best in the world.
There are many culinary qualities of this Sicilian green gold, from sweet to savory preparations.
If you are planning a trip to Sicily you cannot miss trying dishes made with pistachio such as:
- Pistachio Cannoli: Delicious crispy dough tubes filled with a mixture of ricotta and chopped pistachios.
- Pistachio pesto: A variant of the classic Genoese pesto, where the basil is replaced by pistachios, garlic, olive oil and cheese.
- Pistachio Gelato: A creamy, smooth ice cream with an intense pistachio flavor.
- Pistachio tart: A sweet tart with a crunchy base and a soft, aromatic pistachio filling.
- Pistachio Risotto: A creamy and flavorful risotto, prepared with broth, rice, chopped pistachios and grated cheese.
