These Italian pistachios are "green gold"
And you have to try them
Bronte is located just 25 mi from the base of Mount Etna. Because of the mineral-rich topsoil that the active volcano produces, the small town is growing products like never before. According to Mic.com, these "green gold" pistachios are especially unique in flavor, with a bold taste and palpable sweetness.
As these esteemed pistachios are in many ways the small village's main economic product, harvest is both tireless and precise. Farmers wear protective gear to navigate the ragged terrain and pick the raw material. However, the fruit of their labor is undoubtedly seen in the steep sales prices.
Pistachios are a staple of Italian fare. From gelato to pastries, the shelled nut delicacy is putting Bronte on the map like never before. When vacationing through Europe this summer, make sure to get a taste of the "green gold."
