Just Tenerife Desserts

Tenerife produces some of the most delicious exotic fruits you’re likely to find anywhere on the planet but that wasn’t always the case. Until irrigation methods found ways to bring water up from underground galleries, water was precious and rarely used for anything so frivolous as fruit. Consequently, traditional desserts had to rely on basic ingredients which were plentiful, and Tinerfeño housewives learned how to make the most of eggs, sugar, lemon, cinnamon, gofio and almonds. So much so, that you could fill an entire recipe book with the traditional postres or puddings, all of which use the same half dozen ingredients, give or take an addition or two.
