1) Break the bread with your hands (bread must be at least a day old) into small pieces.
2) Prepare a bowl with a little bit of water and salt and add the small pieces of bread.
3) Fry the garlic cloves whole with a bit of bacon or pigs grease chopped and the chorizo cut in pieces.
4) When the garlic turns gold you need to add the pieces of bread. Stir it well, preferably with a wooden spoon.

They are eaten together with a glass of local wine and home made muscat grapes.
What is arropía? Arropía is a dessert traditionally prepared in Torrox with a base of molasses. The molasses must be boiled for about 15-20 minutes after which they pour the honey on a marble stone after which it is worked with the hands until it takes a golden or coppery colour.
