Made like the old way, so you can enjoy its authentic flavor.
Manchegas gachas is a Spanish dish, from the La Mancha region, although in other regions of Spain there are other variants (in the Valencian Community, Andalusia and it even appears in the Russian tradition).
It consists of a kind of porridge , composed of toasted flour cooked with water, which is made with pork belly, garlic, paprika, oil and salt.
The almortas flour (used for its preparation) is not easy to find outside the Castilla-La Mancha region; and inside, it is commercially mixed with wheat, due to the toxicity present in grass pea.
Originally it was food for shepherds and rural people , eaten especially on cold winter days. This dish is popularly consumed in a circle around the "perol" or pan that has been used for the preparation, with a spoon or with a simple piece of bread.
Both in Cuenca, Ciudad Real, Toledo and in some towns in the province of Jaén, they have a habit of not eating porridge when someone in town has died. It is said that if there has been a dead person, that day he sticks his finger in the pot
