HOW TO PRESERVE THE ANCHOVY?
The anchovies should always be kept in the refrigerator until tasting, once we want to enjoy these, we will remove them 15-20 minutes before so that at room temperature the oil and salt dissolve from their possible solidification due to the cold.
The anchovies must be opened and consumed in their totality, the light and the air will dry the surplus anchovies and they will not be in the same conditions as the first ones.
Whenever possible, an anchovy is preserved and presented better in can format, more expiration, better presented by its horizontal shape that at the time of placing it is better.
In the tin it is not affected by light, nor by the air and the vapors that can be generated in a glass jar.

The origin of the anchovy in Santoña is associated to the Italians, and especially to a Sicilian family.
This family arrived in Santoña in search of new fishing grounds since theirs in Italy were running out. Over time they were spending more time in the area and not only during the fishing season, so they ended up settling in Santoña and set up a factory with the idea of selling the anchovies directly clean
