Spain: Market Finds
These are fresh water-cured olives. Surprised I would ever try one of these again? Well, they were delicious!
And there were lots of black truffles to be found. I think it is the season.
No wonder all those "wild" pigs we saw were always rooting around like mad!
If I were a pig, I would definitely go for the truffle-hunter job rather than the serrano ham job. (Kind of a dead-end job, you know?)
And check out this interesting seafood called percebes, otherwise known as gooseneck barnacles:
Aren't they gorgeous? Never did get to try them. I wonder how they're cooked? They only grow in a few select places in the world... mostly Spain and Western Canada!
