If you saw my post a bit over a week ago for Blood Orange and Black Olive Salad, then you will also have come across this "mystery food photo" that was in the same post ...
There were several guesses for olives, and one for immature red grapes, and although it does indeed look as though it could be either of those things, to my surprise no-one guessed that these are in fact pistachios. Yes, surprised the heck out of me too. Don't you think they look rather lovely, and apparently as they mature they turn almost completely red. It was so exciting to me to see something that (to my knowledge at least) is not grown in this country, and which I only know from the harvested product we get at the supermarket.
So now another mystery food item, again photographed on my trip to Greece. Can you see the bright green "pods" hanging in the tree in these two photos, and do you know what they are?
The answer will be posted next week.
I'm also submitting this post to the Two for Tuesdays blog hop.
