|HUESOS DE SANTO (SAINT’S BONES).
MARZIPAN, SWEET EGG YOLK FILLING, GROUND ALMONDS, SUGAR, LEMON, CINAMMON…
I know. I know. The head bone is not really connected to the stomach bone. I think the head bone is actually connected to the neck bone, but I majored in Art. I did take plenty of art students’ anatomy classes and I did work in Medical Illustration for a while, but I don’t remember all the parts and their order.
|SAINT’S BONES UNDER GLASS (IN THE TOWN OF ARCOS DE LA FRONTERA).
(THAT’S A STATUE. I THINK MAYBE JUST A “FINGER BONE” IS REAL — AND NOT VERY TASTY.)
I mentioned earlier in the month that 1 November was the Dia de Todos Los Santos (All Saints Day) and that I hoped to sample Huesos de Santo (Saint’s Bones). The pastries, not the relics. I didn’t get around to looking for the sweets before the holiday, but the other day I happened to find some in a wonderful bakery not far from home. I bought four. Saint’s Bones are delicious and they are now directly connected to the stomach bone.
