A Breton specialty, ribot milk is also known by other names: churned milk, fermented milk, whey or low-butter. Formerly served with potatoes or pancakes, it was eaten by poor families.
There are two categories of dried fruits: nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, etc.) which are naturally dry and dried fruits which are originally fresh and which have been dehydrated (prune, fig. , apricot, grape, banana, etc.). Rich in calories and fiber, they are eaten plain as a snack (ideal for athletes) or as an aperitif, and cooked in dishes (rabbit with prunes) or in pastry (semolina with raisins, cake, etc. ).
