Meteorology

Cardo rojo de Corella The cold has arrived, bringing with it frost and shorter, greyer days.... welcome to winter! But don't worry, it's not all bad news! As the inhabitants of La Ribera in southern Navarre, we're fortunate as we know that there are also some good things to winter, things that make it more flavourful and interesting, namely our vegetables.

And the people of Corella know something about this too. That's why, in winter, they're proud of their cardoons and hold these workshops to praise the flavour and properties of the red cardoon, one of their star products.

So, what's so special about the Corella-grown cardoon?  The answer is clear: its unique growing process. While farmers in other places wrap cardoons in cardboard, the farmers from Corella become true engineers and, two months before consumption, they cover the entire plant with earth to create mounds which can sometimes reach a height of 2 metres. This earth provides the plant with a host of nutrients as well as its characteristic flavour.

If you're a "foodie", then come along to taste and purchase cardoon directly from the producers and let them be the ones to tell you their secret.

Cooked with almond sauce or as a salad, what would become of many Christmas menus without cardoon on the table?
