entre 2 phares de La Palma de Las Canarias…:-)

champs de lave, sel marin et plages “noires” – comme toutes les plages de l’île… Las Salinas de Fuencaliente – un paysage minéral, entre le blanc du sel, l’anthracite des coulées de lave alentour et le bleu “électrique” de l’océan… la production a lieu de mai à octobre, avec la montée des eaux, mais le site reste actif toute l’année: on récupère environ 60 tonnes de sel/an, ainsi que 5 tonnes de fleur de sel… les “palmeros”(les autochtones) rajoutent la fleur de sel à la préparation d’une sauce délicieuse, appelée “mojo verde”, faite de: poivron vert, ail, huile d’olives, vinaigre de Xérès, cumin, et coriandre… 🙂

between 2 lighthouses of La Palma de Las Canarias: lava fields, salt and “black” beaches – like all beaches of the island… Las Salinas(saltern) of Fuencaliente is a mineral landscape, shaped by white salt, anthracite lava flows and “electric” blue ocean… the salt production occurs from May to October, with the rising waters, but the fields remain active throughout the year: about 60 tons of salt and 5 tons of “sea salt flower” per annum… the “palmeros” (inhabitants of La Palma) use it to prepare a delicious sauce called “mojo verde”, made of: green pepper, garlic, olive oil, sherry vinegar, cumin, and cilantro… 🙂

  1. Fascinating. I was surprised to see a palm tree and what looked like underbrush or shrubs in the background. I wondered if salt blew inward and kept things from growing. Evidently not. I presume they export salt. The island doesn’t look too large. You’ve made me curious. I’ll have to find out more on line. Thanks. I love exploring with you.

    • if you’re interested in the Canary islands, and if you have some spare time, please enter @ search(above “recent comments”): Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria or Fuerteventura… La Palma(the palm-tree) is a small Canary island: 50x30kms. You’re welcome, Ma’am! 🙂

  2. Je ne connais pas cette sauce “mojo verde”. Je vais regarder si je peux trouver la recette. Bonne soirée, Mo

  3. Melanie, I wrote down how to make the Mojo Verde. It sounds really good. Thanks.
