 Brontedolci Elite Crema di Pistachio (Pistachio Cream) 

190g - Bronte, Sicily

Amazing Spoon Ready!
Bronte Pistachio Cream with white chocolate

This rich, deep pistachio-green crema is so soft on the tongue it literally melts like a chocolate bar of pistachio. Brontedolci Pistachio Crema is made from 40% Sicilian pistachios and luscious white chocolate ingredients. It is an Italian luxury wrapped up in a jar. 

As you taste a spoonful and the crema moves outwards through your taste sensors, a white chocolate creaminess follows. Then, as the crema dissolves, the pistachio flavor asserts itself and quietly finishes with the perfect blend of creamy white chocolate and pistachio nut. 

So smooooth! You can spread this Sicilian pistachio cream like butter on just about anything. From toast to crackers, to top a simple donut or fill a muffin, sharing this pleasure (or not!) with fellow pistachio lovers is the ultimate. 

Swirl the crema into your ricotta for your next cannoli. Add it to Banana Cream Pie, or Boston Cream Pie (or is that blasphemy?). Make a Crème Anglaise – or just simply enjoy a big spoonful straight from the jar and savor it like a fine Balsamic. 

The crema comes from Bronte, a Sicilian village within sight of Mount Etna, whose economy revolves around agriculture and textiles. The area is known for its olives, oranges, prickly pears, almonds, chestnuts, hazelnuts, and – most importantly – pistachios. All coexist in land characterized by volcanic soils and clay, cultivated for centuries and handed down through generations. 

The cultivation and production of the famous Bronte pistachio, and later Bronte pistachio cream, is an important source of income for Bronte, so it is nicknamed the "green gold". The town of Bronte knew how to exploit this advantage and the "green gold" represents 1% of the world's pistachio production. The pistachio is cultivated in the municipalities of Bronte, between 400 and 900 meters above sea level. 

Brontedolci pistachio cream is rich in tradition and in flavor - a true Sicilian gem!

About Bronte, Sicily:

In 1520, by decree of Emperor Charles V, the town of Bronte was created.  The Birtish Admiral, Horatio Nelson, was awarded the title of "Duke of Bronte" in 1799 by Ferdinand I. During the Renaissance, the city was the scene of a controversial episode, known as the Revolt of Bronte.  And on August 8th, 1860, the peasants of Bronte rebelled by occupying the lands of the landlords, giving credence to the promises of the equitable land distribution by Geribaldi.  The revolt was surpressed by Ninx Bixio. Today, Bronte is a town of 19,347 inhabitants.

Bronte economy circles largely around agriculture and textiles. The area is known for its olives, oranges, prickly pears, almond, chestnut, hazelnut, and, most importantly, pistachios. All coexist in a soil characterized by volcanic soils and clay, cultivated for centuries and handed down from father to son.

The cultivation and production of the famous Bronte pistachio, and later Bronte pistachio cream, is an important source of income for Bronte, so it is nicknamed the "green gold". The town of Bronte knew how to exploit this advantage and the "green gold" represents 1% of world's pistachio production. The pistachio is cultivated in the municipalities of Bronte, between 400 and 900 meters above sea level.

Yummy!
When I saw this, it sounded very tasty so I ordered it. It was fast shipping as always! I’d never tasted pistachio cream before, so I didn’t know what to expect. I’m very happy that it tastes yummy! It’s very smooth and creamy! I can’t wait to try it in a recipe (if it lasts that long, LOL).

Order two of these! Yum!
You will need two because you will eat the first one while getting around to your "special" recipe. Smooth, delicious, and gone before you know it.
