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, the cockles are submerged in seawater at their arrival at the factory in order to naturally purge. After steaming, the cockles are shelled and very carefully washed in warm, lightly-salted water. The best pieces are then manually selected and classified by their size. Eventually they are put in cans with water, salt and a touch of lemon. The cans are sterilised for a longer shelf life.

Harvesting Season: July-January.
