PINE NUTS OF PARK MIGLIARINO SAN ROSSORE

Biological product of the Litorale Pisano

Is along the scenic Litorale Pisano, which come out tasty organic pine nuts of the Parco di Migliarino San Rossore.

Known and used both in the kitchen and in medicine already since Roman times, have excellent nutritional properties because they contain linoleic oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids. The Park's pine nuts, aromatic, resinous , and light yellow are the first in Europe to forge as "organic".

The evergreen forests from which arise, also made famous by Gabriele D'Annunzio in her Alcyone, represent about half of 9000 hectares of protected area of the Park. Once extracted from pine cones, are shelled, cleaned and places to dry according to traditional techniques and without any chemical treatment. The product is used in confectionery and for preparing local sweets as the "torta co' bischeri", a tart filled with chocolate batter, rice and pine nuts; the "castagnaccio" and pesto used as a condiment for pasta. But the most typical sweet remains the "pasticcino Kirzica" composed of a pasta with pine nuts and honey to the beach (which is also produced within the Parco Migliarino), then covered with chopped pine nuts.
