Sicilian Pistachio Paste
This is a luscious, fragrant paste of unsweetened, 100% unadulterated Sicilian pistachios. These rare pistachios, grown on the fertile, mineral-rich slopes of Mt. Etna, near the village of Bronte, are prized for their aromatic nose and intense fruit flavor. Sandwich a generous layer between macaroons, stir a spoonful into pesto or slather over crostini and top with shaved Fiore Sardo (or other sheep's milk cheese) and a drizzle of honey.
Pistachios are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and various nutrients, including vitamin B6 and thiamine.
