Aegina Pistachio Pasteli - 5 bars (7 oz)



These delicious pistachio pasteli's are made with Aegina pistachios and local honey. They are delicious!

Located in the Saronic Gulf near mainland Greece, Aegina has the perfect temperature, climate and soil for growing pistachios, and is recognized by the EU as a P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin). The variety of pistachio that grows on Aegina is Koilarati. A more rare variety that produces a smaller nut with a flavor and texture that is superior to others.

A result of unique weather patterns, Aegina is one of the driest locations in Greece. The pistachios are essentially dry-farmed on the chalky soils, imparting a concentrated flavor to the mature nut. They receive only two small doses of water twice in late summer, to increase the ratio of opened (i.e. ripened) nuts. Such sustainable watering practices are in stark contrast to the heavily-irrigated, industrially farmed US pistachios, which require upwards of 40 inches of irrigation per crop.

Just enough crunch without being too hard. Not cloyingly sweet. Perfect snack!
