tub; large receptacle made of earthenware or metal, similar to a chamber-pot but larger (plastic today). It was used for everything from food storage to washing kitchen items and clothing. During the 10th C in León they were commonly made of glazed earthenware. They were used for washing hands before eating and other items. It is synonymous with terrizo (earthen tub). [Gázquez. Cocina. 2002:32; Sánchez-Albornoz. 2000:46; and Serradilla. 1993:34]

  1. As it is, this recipe would be very much to the taste of lovely Dumbo. Not that I think that the calories should be less, it's only a question of personal taste, but what about making this fritters salted and/or spicy,instead of sweet?

  2. I do not know what you mean by "Dumbo" but changing the recipe to make it salty and/or spice sounds like something up my line. I am always looking for new hors d'oeuvres. Many thanks for the suggestion!
