Noche de San Juan y Día

“La Noche de San Juan, or San Juan Night, is a festival marked by ritual and celebrated throughout Spain commemorating the shortest night and longest day of the year. Each region of Spain has a different twist on how they celebrate it, however they all incorporate bonfires, good food and drink, and great friends. Basically, it is as good a reason as any to party.

The festival of San Juan is held on the eve of June 23 and lasts until the wee hours of June 24th. It traditionally marks the beginning of the summer solstice and has its roots in pagan rituals. The elements of fire, water and light are all embedded in the tradition. Massive bonfires are built on the beaches in Marbella and the Costa del Sol, which represent purification of the spirit. Huge papier mâché figures and faces are then burned through the night, sometimes starting only at midnight There is also a tradition, which states that if you jump over the bonfire three times on San Juan Night, you will be cleansed and purified burning all your problems away. ”

Ya sea para elaborar mermeladas o hacer zumos, consumirlos en crudo o añadirlos en ensaladas, los cítricos siempre aportan unos aromas y sabores típicamente mediterráneos.

En España, las naranjas originarias de Valencia gozan de fama mundial, mientras que las naranjas sevillanas, algo más amargas y con numerosas pepitas, se utilizan para preparar mermeladas y dulces. Si te gusta este tipo de confituras, no retires toda la parte blanca de la cáscara, ya que es la que le proporciona ese amargor tan característico.

El limón, por su parte, es uno de los frutos más populares en los hogares debido a su versatilidad en la cocina. Se utilizan en los marinados de pescados, vinagretas cítricas, zumos detox cargados de vitamina C y también para aromatizar postres, ¿o que sería del arroz con leche sin la cáscara del limón?

Mezclamos dos cítricos de la cuenca mediterránea en un suculento postre con una base crujiente de arroz inflado, miel y chocolate negro.
