This pure pistachio paste is made from 100% pistachios, and is a versatile ingredient, suitable for both savoury and sweet recipes, as it doesn’t contain any artificial flavours or sweeteners. It comes in an easy-squeeze bag, meaning that when you’re getting near the end, you can easily trim the packet just below the seal and squeeze out the last drop.
Use the pistachio paste in everything from an Italian pesto for stirring through pasta dishes, to homemade pistachio cream. Jacob Kenedy uses pistachio paste for his traditional pistachio gelato in the Bocca di Lupo cookbook, but it can also be used to flavour macarons, tortes, biscuits, homemade croissants and baklava. A spoonful of the pistachio paste is even delicious when spread on a slice of warm challah, topped with parmesan shavings or a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
Ingredient: 100% pistachio. Best before Oct 2013.
