One of the moments when they enjoyed their work the most was lunchtime, because having, as it was, a number of indigenous products, like nuts, figs and bread, in addition to milk, with which they made their cheese, prepared the following:
They started by heating two slices of bread in the embers and placed some cheese s lacquers on top of the bread to soften.
Then, opened in half a fig that they placed on top of the cheese, and about him, a walnut, to again place and finish closing this mounted, with the other cheese lasca and slice of hot bread.
