Nutty. Milky. Smooth. Sweet. Irresistible. Those are the words that come to mind when tasting a spoonful of our favorite Aegina pistachio producer’s sweet pistachio spread. Made with the same pure Aegina PDO pistachios as our unsweetened pistachio butter, here the addition of sugar, extra virgin Greek olive oil, and milk brings this unusual product to a whole other level of irresistibility!
You can eat it as is, literally out of the jar (remember, it’s sweet, so unlike peanut butter, doesn’t need jam to hold its own), or use it in myriad inventive ways. Sometimes I swirl it into vanilla ice cream and refreeze the mix, baffling guests with a delectable, if somewhat hard to pinpoint flavor combination. The taste of the pistachios is very prominent and delicious, but the underlying milkiness and the herbaceous undertones of olive oil combine to make this spread really unique.
Use it as a sweet treat, inside crepes, over French toast or pancakes, swirled into ice cream, in smoothies with Greek yogurt, combine any which way with dark chocolate, or savor an antithesis and serve it with something salty like prosciutto all spread and wrapped together on crunchy crostini. It’s also great in mousses.
Amazing! Absolutely delicious; it's the Nutella of the pistachio world. I've been adding it to different things; I even warmed some slightly and served with pistachio gelato. Yum!
Delicious and such fast service
I was astonished at the speed of receipt. I guess I thought it would come directly from Greece, but apparently there is a store in the US. But the butter is delicious. I ordered extra to give as Christmas gifts since I was recently in Greece and saw how delicious it was.
We first experienced this wonderful spread in Greece. My granddaughter can't get enough.
Bought a jar of this while in Angina, Greece and absolutely loved it! We had no room in suitcases to by more. I was so excited to find this on-line. Bought some for Christmas presents. Delivered on time and individually bubble wrapped. I will be back for more:-)
I've bought other pistachio spread from Europe, but this is the best! I highly recommend it and will keep buying it... Yummy!
