Mount Etna, one year ago, from a pistachio farm in Bronte, the city of pistachios… The locals call her Mamma Etna.
This weekend is the Pistachio Festival in Bronte, a town world renowned for its pistachio cultivation. The mineral-rich lava stone-soil on Mount Etna’s Western slopes, photographed from a pistachio farm I visited with a private, custom tour I led in May, offers fertile environs for the trees to grow.
We’ve done so much the last two days, I don’t know where to begin! For me though, something totally new was our visit today to a pistacchio farm in Bronte, the capital of Sicilian pistachios, on Etna’s western slopes. It was so cool to be up close to these beautiful trees. Did you know that…
Green gold: that’s what crema di pistacchio, made from DOP pistachios from Bronte at the foot of Mount Etna, truly is. It melts in your mouth. Perfect for breakfast with a warm croissant, or “cornetto” in Italian. #sicily #sicily_travel #sicilia #sicily_tourism #italy #ig_sicily #italia #siciliaph #breakfast #pistachio #pistacchio #croissant #cornetto #bronte #crema #butter #food
