Campo Del Cielo
Typical Murcian cuisine is fresh vegetables, seafood caught in the Mar Menor, rice (which is grown in the village of Calasparra), sausages, preserved foods, nuts, fresh fruit and sweet confectionery.
Murcia's confectionery can be very sweet and includes Tocino de cielo made with egg yolks and syrup, Yemas de Caravaca which is cake made with egg yolks and marzipan, Cabello de Ãngel pumpkin strands in syrup, bizcochos borrachos sponge soaked in wine and syrup, tortada murciana meringue and paparajotes dessert which has Arab origins of lime leaves wrapped in sweet pastry, coated in sugar and cinnamon.
