Sicilian Pistachio Spread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pistachios get the luxury treatment in this unbelievably smooth, sweet spread from Il Colle del Gusto. Extra virgin olive oil lends glossy sheen and velvety texture, but the flavor is all pistachio. The high percentage of Sicilian pistachio paste in this dreamy jarful makes for an intensely nutty flavor and aroma that you'll smell the second you pop open the lid.
Mix this luxurious treat with pastry cream or whipped cream for a delicious cream puff filling. Drizzle atop desserts like ice cream or chocolate cake. Spoon over cheesecake or stir into rice pudding. Spread a thick layer onto croissant or our favorite way, eat it right out of the jar!
About the Producer:
In 2012, Antonio della Corte was creating sweet mixes for gelaterie and pastry shops and Anna Maria Conti was running a farm, bed and breakfast a few miles north of Rome. In a blend as natural as chocolate and hazelnut, the two combined their talents to produce a line of spreads made with Anna Maria';s own extra virgin olive oil and nuts grown on friends' farms. We met the couple (partners in business and in life) at the farmers market in Rome just three months after the launch of their delicious creations, and we loved the spreads so much that we decided right there and then to bring them back for you.
