NUTS OF ANOTHER ORDER

Agrimontana IGP Piemonte Hazelnuts- (NUT20) 2kg
Sicilian Pistachios- (NUT36) 1 kg
True Iberian Pine Nuts (NUT34) 1 kg

A few tree nut varieties have their legendary celebrities and have gained instantaneous name recognition. True IGP Piemonte Hazelnuts are without doubt so much more flavorful than any other. Sicilian Pistachios are still another nut that is so decidedly superior and unique to our California varietal as to seem like a different species entirely. Deep emerald green and packed with oil, they gain their deep flavor and texture from the climate and volcanic soil surrounding Mt. Etna. Lastly we highlight the true Iberian Pine Nut. Again, due to the superior flavor and texture of the true Iberian Pine Nut those who have had the opportunity to compare them to the more commonplace Chinese product recognize a distinct contrast in quality. It must be noted that they particularly shine when gently toasted. Price is a consideration when opting for these three prized nuts but used judiciously, the payoff in flavor and satisfaction is considerable.
