The nuns at Convento de San Leandro in Seville, Spain, have sold just one item for more than four centuries: yemas de San Leandro. These rich, creamy nuggets are a simple mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and egg yolks.
Establishments across Spain make traditional yemas (diners enjoy yemas de Santa Teresa, for example, on October 15, the saint’s feast day). But to acquire San Leandro’s signature supply of yemas, you’ll have to visit the convent, a Seville institution since the 13th century.
