Walnuts

Aixarafó walnuts, from regenerative agriculture, are cultivated imitating as much as possible the nature that surrounds us.

We do not use chemical or synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, or fungicides; only biological products made of natural minerals.

We fertilize with these minerals and compost from chicken manure improved with rock dust and remains of plant material. We work following the lunar phases and promoting the full potential of the environment we have at our disposal:

  • birds, bats, insects, etc.

We encourage life on and in the soil to improve its resilience and fertility. We just let the plant eat whatever it wants whenever it wants. This way, we make the trees express their full potential, and consequently, the fruit has an exceptional mineral and nutritional richness. We flee from the standards set by marketing (color, size, external image) and we care about soil life, nutrition, and people’s health.

Cold meat

Asco’s artisanal cold meat is made in the workshops of our butchers following the guidelines of our ancestors. The result is top-quality cold meat, a pleasure for the most demanding palates.

The most select choice of lean pork and fresh meats, the quality and proportion of the spices, the sausage elaboration process, and the curing or drying time are all part of the taste and quality of these products.

  • White sausage
  • Black rice sausage
  • Black blood and onion sausage
  • ‘Secallona’
  • Spicy or sweet chorizo
  • Majorcan sausage

Corassons

‘Corassons’ are typical of Ascó and the Ribera d’Ebre though we do not know exactly their origin or whether the lard ones were previous to the vegetable oil ones. ‘Corassons’ are made with molds of different shapes: star, moon, flower, or heart. However, the heart shape is the one that became popular more quickly.

In some villages, there is a recipe for ‘corassons’ that uses aniseeds, an ingredient that gives a heritage value to much of our pastry. We can find this ingredient in many recipes, which makes us think about the inheritance from Islamic cuisine.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Eggs
  • Flour
  • Lard
  • Sugar
  • Grated lime

Olive oil

At the beginning of the 20th century, about twenty oil mills operated simultaneously in Ascó. The large concentration of these industries was because agriculture, and in particular the cultivation of olives, was the main economic source of the village. Today, most of these mills have disappeared.

One of Ascó’s star products is the olive oil, extracted from centuries-old and some millennial olive trees, as well as from young plantations.

With varieties such as arbequina or graft, an oil of great quality and flavour is produced.
