The vine is called “videira” and the cut branches are called “vides”. The “vides” left in the ground after pruning are collected in packages and tied up with a “verga”. These packages of branches – “vides” – are called “molhos de vides”.

The “molhos de vides” are used as fuel to heat up clay brick ovens wich used to bake bread and cook “leitão da Bairrada” or “chanfana”.

Meanwhile you can imagine how succulent it is…
