  • Extra Virgin Oil

    EXTRA VIRGIN OIL

    The olive wealth of the area of ​​Aragon is demonstrated in its magnificent trees of millenary life. Of the oldest in Spain, already introduced in the Roman domination, was a success for the definitive implantation of this tree the encouragement with which the Aragon rulers rewarded their cultivation with Real de Vellón that each municipality was obliged to pay for " planzón "to the year of the planted one, once taken. In this way they gradually covered themselves with leafy olive groves, hills and plains in the area where the soil and the atmospheric agents limited, by demands of the trees and profit of the cultivator, those that produce today, an average annual harvest of eight million kilograms. At that time Arab mills with animal traction were used for the extraction of oil and beam presses moved by arm to dispatch the harvest, until around 1866 the French brought new manufacturing techniques and the oils are no longer turbid and acidic.

    The main characteristic of the Arbequina oil is that it is a sweet oil, that is, it does not have any bitter aftertaste . Some arbequina oil can sting throat, simply indicating that it is fresh. In general, the Arbequina oil is suitable for those looking for a extra virgin olive oil with a mild flavor .

    Another characteristic of Arbequina oil is that it is usually quite aromatic , giving fruity aromas, of banana, apple. Mature arbequina oils are often reminiscent of small children's fruit porridge. This aroma is due to the high percentage of polyunsaturated acids that usually contain ..

    Arbequina oil, like the rest of olive oils, has a high percentage of oleic acid , which helps to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good (HDL) .

    It should also be noted that Arbequina oil has polyphenols slightly lower values ​​than other varieties. Therefore, people who consume olive oil with the aim of improving their cardiovascular health, should consume other varieties, such as picual or chamomile.

    CHOCOLATES

    White, black and with milk . This is how we have traditionally known one of the most appetizing foods. Addictive even for some. Chocolate began as a drink that Mayans and Aztecs recognized as a gift from their gods, currency and delicatessen reserved for their elites.

    Cristóbal Colón was the first European to try it, but it was Hernán Cortés who brought the cocoa fruit to the old continent, which was then prepared as a strong drink. The Aztecs roasted and ground the seeds, mixed them with water and spices (chilli, cinnamon, pepper or vanilla) and swallowed that bitter liquid.

    In Europe the monks were one of the first chocolatier teachers and, over the years and their progressive introduction in different countries, those bitter drinks evolved towards what we now recognize as chocolate: more or less sweet tablets that melt into the mouth.

    Chocolate, good or bad for your health?

    Like all foods, chocolate is a very interesting product. Its flavonoids give chocolate and cocoa antioxidant properties and facilitate the flow of blood. And the presence of polyphenols also has heart-healthy effects.

    Black chocolate is considered to be cocoa paste that is mixed only with sugar (and, maybe, with other flavors and ingredients). A larger amount of cocoa, healthier (Sánchez recalls that there are black chocolates with less than 50% cocoa, so the rest is sugar).

    The greater the amount of cocoa, the healthier the chocolate

    Milk chocolate, as the name suggests, is made up of cocoa paste, cocoa butter, sugar (or similar) and milk. Like black chocolate, there are chocolates with milk with different proportions of cocoa / sugar / cocoa butter.

    And the white chocolate ... it's not really chocolate, because it does not have cocoa paste, the basic ingredient to be able to call something like 'chocolate'. It is a combination of cocoa butter, sugar and milk solids and is the sweetest and richest in the three types of chocolate, but for certain combinations it is surprisingly pleasant.

    JAMS

    You can not talk about marmalade without special mention of one of the older methods that are known today to preserve food than in the case of fruits consisted of mixing them with honey . This process was developed by the Romans through which they managed to make a substance similar to jam, basically it was to add an equivalent weight in honey to the fruit and cook it until the desired consistency was obtained.

    Subsequently the Arabs introduced the use of sugar in Europe . Like the Romans, they added the same weight to the fruit in sugar and then carried out the cooking until the density was adequate. Such was the success of this food that the jams are already mentioned in cookbooks in ancient Rome .

    There are marmalades of practically all types of fruits: raspberries, cherry, orange, berries, plums, figs, strawberries and endless fruits more . Although fruit is the basic component, some jams can also be made with vegetables, such as tomatoes and carrots, or wine.

    The jam made of fruit, in which the pulp is cooked with sugar or honey.

    Its simplest preparation is made with chopped and crushed fruits, to then add an equal or greater weight of sugar. Before cooking, the fruit stays 12 hours in maceration with the sugar so that they release their juices .

    After cooking, in which, in addition to sugar, acids and pectins can be added, the fruit is reduced to a kind of puree , which in some cases may contain small visible pieces of fruit. The cooking ends when the fruit becomes crystalline and the syrup achieved acquires a dense consistency. The cooking time will vary according to the type of fruit, but the average is about 45 minutes.

    Must present a bright color, fresh smell and taste . It must have curdled properly. For this it is advisable to take a series of precautions, such as using healthy fruits and at the ideal point of maturity, clean well of pips, bones, etc. The cooking should be done in the most appropriate containers, the best are the iron pots with a thick bottom, on which a very soft heat source should be applied homogeneously. It is essential to constantly stir the mixture with a long-handled wooden spoon, to prevent it from sticking to the bottom, and to keep the pot uncovered during cooking. As important as processing is an adequate packaging process and the preservation of the product in dry, cool and dark places .

  • Honey Artisan

    ARTISAN HONEY

    Honey is a product with extraordinary qualities.

    Looking back to discover the history of honey, going back to the origin, we realize that it has accompanied the human being from the beginning.

    The history of honey goes back to the first settlers of the planet, who soon realized that the syrupy fluid that bees made in their honeycombs thanks to the nectar of flowers, would be an indispensable aid in a wide range of occasions.

    Although currently difficult to believe, the Stone Age men and women expressed in their cave paintings the work of collecting honey. A drawing was discovered where a man, with a basket on his back, puts his hand in a honeycomb to extract the honey. Surely many of our ancestors would suffer the effects of the bites of these insects, but that did not prevent them from enjoying such a sweet and energetic product.

    Despite these first tests that prove their collection, what is clear is that the history of honey and its origin, is located at the same time that these insects and flowers made their appearance on Earth.

    Studying the history of honey, we see that this has been an inseparable companion of the human being and continues to be in our days. The Egyptians practically paid homage to him, since they thought it came from the tears of the god Ra . They fed their children with it and also used it as a preservative of the meat when they made long trips.

    If the Egyptians had honey on a pedestal, the Greeks and the Romans did not lag behind. The first ones considered it a source of wisdom . However, they thought it was one of the foods of the gods of Olympus . But not only that. It was also an infallible method for children to stop crying. For this they took honey with a sponge and placed on the baby's lips .

    While, in the Roman Empire this product was part of the diet of the legions . In fact these strong warriors consumed a drink called mulsum made with wine and honey . Something would have this potion since later the Visigoths were also great fans to take it.

    The Bible also includes some references . In two of them it is demonstrated that at that time it was a product that was commercialized and even exported to other territories. The prophet Ezekiel points out in his book that the land of Israel exchanged with the city of Tire (in present-day Lebanon) products such as wheat, oil, resin and, of course, honey. Another reference is produced in the book of Genesis, where the sons of Jacob transport honey, pistachios and almonds to Egypt.

  • Animal pates

    ANIMAL PATCHES

    In the dictionary of the SAR, the pate is defined as an "edible pasta made of minced meat or liver, generally of pork or poultry." In turn, in the Little Larousse Gastronomique it is said that it is "... a cooked preparation cooking or cold cuts, hot or cold.

    In ancient Egypt, the pharaohs already delighted themselves with a paste of crushed livers, of the ducks that migrated in winter to the areas on the banks of the Nile; when, centuries later, they took this custom to the region of France, there was already something similar to the terrine but with goose livers. In ancient Rome a similar food was also made with pork and other macerated elements such as bird tongues. Already in the Middle Ages there were many recipes for macerated meats including the "white manjar" of the time, which consisted of chicken breasts crushed with almonds and spices.

    The technique of cooking in earthenware containers was also established. In France, initiated the popular upheaval that led to the French Revolution, the untimely Marquis (Marshal) of Contades (1704 - 1795) wanted to pay tribute to the sovereigns Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette; for this, he asked his chef, Jean Pierre Clause, to create a special dish for the occasion with the livers of some of the geese of his own farm.

    It occurred to Clause to modify his customary recipe of goose liver, roasted and unmoulded to offer it in slices, for a thick mass of bread in which he accommodated the seasoned livers until they were cooked and, at the same time, the golden bread.

    After the early death of his boss, Clause partnered with another equally unemployed cook, Nicolás Françoise Doven. They started in a hotel in Saint Germain, and it was Doven who invented the truffles to perfect the "foie en croûte" and call it "pate en croûte" and spread it on toast. In the nineteenth century, Nicolás Appert (1749 - 1841) at the behest of Napoleon invented a system of food packaging that allows its conservation and that ends precisely in the technique of canning; allows the pâté to begin selling under this processing system.

  • Salt and Spices

    GOURMET SPICES

    Spices have always played a very important role in the diet of human beings, they have been used both to preserve and to season food.

    Spices are substances of vegetable origin that are used to season and preserve food. They have a great flavoring capacity, so they are usually used in small quantities, and can be mixed together to achieve different combinations. Most come from Asia, although there are also some from the Mediterranean and America.

    Saffron, pepper, paprika, cardamom, clove, oregano, walnut and cinnamon are some of the most consumed spices in the world.

    The great civilizations of the Ancient Age also used spices in various ways: the Egyptians used them as a condiment, but also as cosmetics and even in lotions related to embalming.

    Greeks and Romans used spices in medicine, in the kitchen and in some religious celebrations.

    In the Middle Ages , there is a decrease in the use of spices in European cuisine, while Arabs stand out for the use and knowledge of these products.

    Spices have also played an important role in the preparation of sauces , whose first references we find in medieval times.

    In the 18th and 19th centuries, the first industrial sauces began to be manufactured, in which spices played a prominent role in obtaining different flavors and differentiating them from the competition.

    The trade in spices supposed wealth and power. For this reason, it has been one of the tasks to which most societies have dedicated themselves, and especially those that developed on both shores of the Mediterranean.

    The Egyptians were the first to seek the route to the East, but it was the Phoenicians who first established a spice market and established the so-called "Spice Route" strong>.

    This town, eminently navigator, had for a long time the monopoly of this trade, since they were the only ones who knew the exact origin of the spices and did not share the secret with anyone.

    Subsequently, the Romans established an annual route from the eastern coast of Egypt to the Moluccan Islands.

    This route started in April and returned in October, to take advantage of the monsoons. They also used a land route, the Silk Road, to trade in spices.

    The fall of the Western Roman Empire and the conquest of Alexandria by Islam led to a decline in the trade of spices by Europeans, an activity that began to recover with the Crusades.

    We must underline the role of Genoa and Venice, which owe much of their prosperity at this time to the trade of these products.

    It has always been said that Columbus discovered America thanks to spices. And it is true. Christopher Columbus was looking for an alternative route to reach the Indies and not depend on the caravans that crossed Asia.

    But he not only discovered the alternative route, but also a new continent, new foods - like potatoes or tomatoes - and new spices - like the allspice or vanilla -.

    For its part, the Portuguese, also looking for an alternative to the Mediterranean border Africa , discovering on the way several unknown spices.

    Currently, it is easy to find a large number of spices in all corners of the planet and enjoy them to flavor our dishes.

  • Wines and liquors

    WINES AND LIQUORS

    The vine has been extended thanks to its adaptive characteristics, has required few genetic changes to adapt to its cultivation in different areas, has low water and mineral requirements, grows on lands where other fruit trees would not grow , thanks to its regenerative capacity allows an intensive collection.

    This adaptability was one of the keys to its expansion throughout Europe, as well as in most of the temperate climates of the earth. One of the greatest changes suffered by the vine was when, in antiquity, it was converted by artificial selection from a "wild" to a "domesticated" variety (hermaphrodite), the reasons for this change are unknown at present. Soon it was possible to verify that the wine was the sum of a set of environmental factors: climate, latitude, height, hours of light, etc.

    Many of the great cultures of the Mediterranean as well as the Middle East claim to have invented themselves the winemaking process attributing their discovery to a local hero or an agrarian divinity. But the fact is that the trade and the expansion of some cultures and empires has caused the wine and its cultivation to spread to different regions of the Earth, adopting new flavors and aromas. Wine (like other basic foods) appears in the culture loaded with symbolism. The adaptive capacity of the grape to different climates and soils, its high yield, is the only fruit that retains in its interior quantities of an unusual acid called tartaric that favors the action of the yeasts. It can be said that at present the grape is the most collected fruit worldwide, with 70% of it dedicated to the production of wine.
