A Taste of History: Pistachios and a Refreshing Caprice d’Orient Drink

The pistachio nut, with its vivid green color and distinct taste, has an intriguing past. First, let’s take a closer look at its journey over centuries and continents, followed by a recipe for a cool drink made with Caprice d’Orient pistachio sauce.

A Nutty History

Evidence of pistachio cultivation originates back to the Middle East around 7000 BC. Pistachios, whose name derives from the Greek word “pistake,” which means pine nut, were probably first consumed in Persia (modern-day Iran). They eventually developed into an expensive item along trade routes, and by the first century AD, they had made it to Greece and Rome.

A Global Delight

The middle -ages saw a sustained increase in the popularity of pistachios. They were brought to Spain by Arabs, where they are still widely used in cuisine. Eventually, pistachios made their way onto royal tables throughout Europe. They are now grown all over the world, in Iran, Turkey, California, and the Mediterranean, among other places.
