  1. Pistachios are the most expensive nut we have, and I can imagine how the Sicilian Bronte pistachio can be that costly. ? I didn’t know the town where the pistachio comes from is close to the volcano, and I didn’t even know police would guard the fields, it was a very interesting read. I usually have pistachio-flavored ice cream, and the best variety is indeed the Bronte one.
    I can’t eat pistachios all the time due to their price, but my area (north west of Italy) is known for the hazelnuts that are also good and I’m satisfied someway. ?
