What are … THE LEMONS KNOWN AS CASCARÚOS ?
These days it is a tradition that lemons that have a very thick peel, hence the name of ‘cascarúo’, are sold in various street stalls. Usually, the lemon is peeled and the white part of the peel is left next to the pulp. Once the lemon is cut in small pieces, then the salt is added and it is ready to eat. Lovers of the acid will enjoy its taste.
Hundreds of children fitted with blessed palm leaves parade on Sunday morning with the brotherhood Nuestro Padre Jesús a su entrada en Jerusalén, popularly known as Pollinica, because of the small she-donkey that accompanies the donkey on which Jesus rides. The presence of so many children makes this brotherhood to have been always considered as the brotherhood school of Málaga.
Today it can be a wonderful day to try the named ajoblanco, a very special type of gazpacho (cold vegetable soup) without tomato: its ingredients are garlic, almonds and olive oil and it is usually served with grapes.
