The slopes on Mount Etna, on the east coast of Sicily are the treasure cove of the world famous Bronte Pistachio, also called “green gold” being the most important resource of the area.
Bronte produces only 1% of the world pistachio output, but its quality has no equal. Unlike the products of American or Asia origin, which are mostly yellow-green, the Bronte Pistachio is characterized by an intense bright green colour, with very marked aroma and flavour.
Bronte pistachios, the “green gold”, are eaten shelled and salted, and have great adaptability, both in the kitchen and the patisserie. They are used in the confectionery industry, above all for cakes, pastries, torrone, mousses, confections, and ice creams.
