The Cockles in Brine story:
Cockles in brine are a type of seafood that is popular in Spain. They are harvested off the coast of Galicia in northwest Spain, where conditions are ideal for producing sweet and delicate mollusks. The cockles are collected by hand on the beaches of the Galician coast at low tide. The area is known for the highest quality seafood, and the richness of the waters gives the cockles an unbeatable flavor. The cockles are then soaked in a natural, flavor-enhancing brine. The hand-packed cockles come from the Galician Rias along the Atlantic Coast. The cockles are tiny yet plump, tender, and flavorful.
