Although it represents for us a delight borrowed from the Sicilian tradition, land ancient origins of pistachio lead us to distant Persia. The cultivation of this long-lived plant (the life cycle can last even 300 years) has spread over time also in Italy, reaching qualitative peaks in the areas of Bronte and Andrano, on the slopes of Etna, although the world's largest producer is Iran followed by the United States and Turkey. What we usually eat of this plant is the seed that is dried, toasted and sometimes salted, ready to be consumed as a snack or included in delicious recipes.
