Passionate about pistachios? Then you must try these tiny Turkish treasures. Though smaller than most, they have an exquisitely rich, sweet taste and tender texture that makes this variety a munching marvel.
When you nibble on Turkish pistachios (or antep), you're tasting a delicacy that has been enjoyed in the Middle East for thousands of years-the earliest records date the pistachio tree to 7,000 B.C. in Turkey. They're legendary, too: The Queen of Sheba apparently dictated that all pistachios in the land be hers and hers alone to share with who she pleased.
Flash forward to modern-day Turkey and the native nut is still as prized as ever both as a snack and the main ingredient in another national treasure: baklava. You, too, can snack on the little nuts out of hand (and out of their shells), one mouthwatering morsel at a time, or incorporate them into a great many sweets and savories for a flavor odyssey of your own.
