Novembers selection is the Pistachio, a native of central Asia. Exporters are Iran, Turkey, Greece, Syria and Italy. The Pistachios you received today were grown in Kern County, at the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley in California. These Pistachios are raw, fully mature nuts, naturally opened while still on the tree. Pistachios are a good source of vegetable protein and complex carbohydrate energy. Having no cholesterol, and high dietary fiber make them an excellent and healthy snack.
Open the shell and pop them right into your mouth. Eating raw or roasted Pistachios is an acquired, but healthy taste for many Americans. Try adding the shelled nuts to your favorite Mediterranean dish and cook them right into the rest of the ingredients.
