Today is Canary Day. Like the national day in most places, it’s an excuse for lots of patriotism.

So here’s a picture of some traditional Canarian food – wrinkly potatoes. As you can see, they’re small potatoes, cooked in their skins. Actually they’re boiled in very salty water – you can use sea water – for at least 20 minutes, then allowed to dry with the remaining heat. They come out very tasty. Some people peel them before eating, some don’t.

They’re usually eaten with a sauce called mojo, which will probably be the subject of my next post.
