Spanish Cockles - Los Peperetes de Jesus Lorenzo - Villagarcía de Arousa (Pontevedra) Galicia

The common cockle is a bivalve mollusc found buried in mud and sand in estuaries and on beaches.

Before the handling process starts at Los Peperetes, cockles are submerged into seawater as soon as they arrive at the factory so that they naturally purge. After steaming, cockles are shelled and very carefully washed in warm, lightly-salted water. The best cockles are then manually selected and classified by their size. Eventually they are put in cans with water, salt and a touch of lemon. Cans are sterilised for a longer shelf life.

Harvesting Season: July-January.
