If there is one nut that I love, it’s Turkish pistachios—also known as Gaziantep Pistachios (Antep pistachios for short) and these bright green jewels are very special. Each nut is early harvested, and according to the Founder of Fistik Evi, each pistachio tree is only nourished with rainwater and sunshine.
