You will find it hard to purchase already made pistachio paste, but it is a common ingredient in professional bakeries or for ice-cream artisans. I have used it in several recipes in the Tenina's America cookbook, but am more than happy to eat it as is, out of the fridge as a little snack! Akin to marzipan, but not quite, it is very delicious on its own. You can leave out the spinach if you wish, I used it merely to add colour. It adds no flavour to the paste at all. I have added butter to this online version, as it makes it easier to use I have found. However, it too can be left out, you will just find it harder to work with in some recipes.
