WHY WE LOVE IT
We went backwards with this ingredient: never considered it too much, until we tried a Pistacchio di Bronte gelato in Milan, and after this, our curiosity couldn't be silenced any longer. We love it with fish recipes, with scallops and tuna really give their best. Also in frangipane tart and well of course, gelato!

The Red Beetle Team visited Agricola Fernandez in 2017. The land surrounding Mount Etna is breathtaking and the fields were slowly coming back to life getting ready for the harvest. Andrea, the young owner of the company, showed us around and told all there is to know about Pistachios. We couldn't be there during harvest, which is why these products are Silver Beetle Certified™.
