As one of the world's leading almond producers, the delicious nut flavors many Sicilian dishes. From pastas, to fish, salads, and of course desserts, almonds have been worked into various shapes, tastes and uses to flavor local cuisine for centuries. Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, Pasticcini Siciliana alle Mandorle (or amaretti) are a holiday favorite.
The Fresh Taste of Mediterranean Spring
Wild-harvested fennel fronds bring the fresh scent and taste of Mediterranean spring to harmony when combined with our soft, sweet full-bodied Sicilian almonds in this delicious pesto. Serve alongside a perfectly grilled pork chop, slather onto cod to bake, or eat on a crispy slice of bread drizzled with honey.
Straight from the Jar
Bona Furtuna’s pestos and spreads capture the fresh flavors of Sicily’s abundant produce. Surrounded by numerous volcanoes, both active and dormant, the island’s exceptional fertility is due to its nutrient-rich volcanic soils and temperate climate. Taste the coast of the Mediterranean in each bite. We certainly won’t question you eating these straight from the jar.
I have not had a chance to use it. Your site does not have any recipes and I have been searching for suggestions. Most of them discuss how to make wild fennel almond pesto.
