Slow saturday suman

Reason for making this is cos im so annoyed at how overpriced they sell for at the Filipino bakery. A pair of suman sells for 2.50 as opposed to less then 10 bucks all in all to buy the ingredients.

What I used:

Step 3: enjoy it warm and steamy after its cooked for an hour. My mothers creation is still the best

My first time to make my native Philippine snack!

Its a rootcrop sweetened with raw cane sugar and grated coconut mixed altogether, wrapped in banana leaves and steamed for 45 mins. My mother makes the best suman ever.

Step 1- combine all this madness in a wide bowl add sugar to your liking
Step 2: The tedious part is wrapping each handful to the banana leaf.

I'm Cristina, this username was named after my husband's favorite coffee drink. In a span of less than a month in November 2015, I quit my decade old job as a news tv producer, got married to the love of my life, and flew to California, seven thousand miles from my hometown, the Philippines. Yep, thats how I roll… or how my life ricocheted.
