Aegina Pistachios: Lardy???

Jim Leff | | Apr 30, 2008 07:15 PM

A friend brought me back Aegina pistachios from Greece. Tiny, pointy, and intense, they're also unbelievably rich and unctuous. My first thought was that they'd somehow had lard added to them!

But then I returned to them, and y'know, I'm willing to bet they truly ARE lardy. They're redolent of pork chops.

Is that possible?
