    Gastronomy

    Pinoso cuisine is typically Mediterranean. The history of Pinoso, its geographic location, its climate and the fertility of its land have given it an enormous richness and variety.

    One of the principal charms of Pinoso Gastronomy is, that it has preserved the most traditional and popular recipes from almost time immemorial to the present day.

    Among them some dishes like “gachamiga”, “rice with a rabbit and snails”, “gazpachos” and “fasegures” stand out, but not forgetting cold sausages which in Pinoso reach the highest levels of quality, for example dry cold sausage “longaniza seca”. Cookies and homemade sweets, like famous “perusas” occupy a privileged place in the local gastronomy.

    Perusas

    They originate in Pinoso in the 18th century, where they were made in family ovens until the 20th century when they started to produce them on a big scale. At present about 3500 kg of perusas are made in Pinoso per year.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 kg baking flour
    • 80 g sugar
    • 1/2 l olive oil
    • 14 eggs
    • 1 dry aniseed

    Preparation

    Mix in a bowl 14 egg yolks, 2 egg whites, dry aniseed and oil.

    Knead the mixture by hand and add flour slowly and continuously.

    Once the pastry is prepared, leave it to rest for about 3 hours.

    Afterwards, we cover our hands with oil (this makes it easier to work the pastry) and gives the “perusas” a better shape. They should be like a thick biscuit

    They are left in an oven for about 15 minutes.

    When removed from the oven, sprinkle them with icing sugar.
