This one for advanced gourmands only… Tsitsirava or Τσιτσίραβα in Greek are the young shoots of the bush Pistasia Terebinthous, which is the wild pistachio tree that grows in the area of Pelion as well as other parts of Greece. These leaves are collected usually around April each year and are then pickled in jars with the addition of some garlic, vinegar and salt. They can then be eaten on their own as an appetiser, or added to a salad in the same way that you would add capers or sea fennel.
