Pastillas de Leche are one of my favorite native delicacies or sweets. apastil1 Almost certainly influenced by Spaniards who were stationed here and looking to replicate something sweet and dairy like from back home, pastillas are made of just milk and sugar. The milk and sugar are boiled together until thickened, then cooled and formed by hand into little mini-logs that are often rolled in more granulated sugar before they are individually packed in cellophane and paper. If the mixture is allowed to boil to the point that it starts to get darker in color, almost moccha like, this is known as “tostado.” Bulacan seemed to be the epicenter for pastillas production but lately some of the best pastillas made from pure carabao milk come from Nueva Ecija. Some commercially made pastillas shortcut their recipes by adding condensed milk that results in a faster cooking process but also an extra sweet outcome.

Because its ingredients are so simple, the finest possible quality milk and sugar is absolutely imperative. apastil2Lately, I find that the pastillas de leche made with pure carabao’s milk has far more character, flavor and soul than many of the cow’s milk versions. I have two sources for carabao’s milk pastillas. First, in the photo up top, is a Pastillas de Leche made at the Philippine Carabao Center at the Central Luzon State University (CLSU) in Munoz, Nueva Ecija. The candy is soft, extra smooth, creamy and rich in taste. While sweet, it is not overpoweringly so. And better yet, it is not rolled in additional granulated sugar which often interferes with the pure taste of the milk/sugar mixture. While it comes in rather small portions, it is heavenly. A small package of pastillas holds about 20 candies and costs about P50 pesos retail. They come beautifully wrapped in cellophane, followed by white paper then white Japanese paper that is expertly folded at the ends.

The second source for carabao’s milk pastillas is the DVF Farms (Dairy Farms) pastillas from Talavera, apastil3Nueva Ecija. These pastillas also have great flavor and a smoother texture than cow’s milk pastillas but they do come coated in sugar which tends to take away from the purity of the delicacy. These are readily available in several farmer’s markets and come in the attractive packaging seen in the third photo at right. The individual candies of DVF are larger than those of the CLSU pastillas and also come well wrapped and boxed. Pastillas tend to get old rather quickly and I would not keep them more than a few days after you purchase them. Mind you, that has never been a problem in our house as several boxes of pastillas can be consumed in less than a day!

    Mexico, Pampanga also produces heavenly pastillas but they don’t get to Manila – finished off as soon as cooked.

    Some even shortcut the process by adding powdered milk! They don’t actually taste dismal but the purity of the carabao’s milk is ruined.

    Pastillas making is the main industry in San Miguel, Bulacan.

    Sevilla’s in San Miguel, Bulacan has come up with pastillas de leche in plastic tubs. A spoonful melting in your mouth is absolutely heavenly!

  4. Marketman says:

    Oh my gosh, that sounds positively like pastillas-overload in the making. Will have to try that someday.

    Silay, Neg.Occ. has its version of pastillas de leche and we call it “Dulce Gatas”.

    Apr 16, 2005 | 1:26 pm

     
  6. Frosy says:

    Felicci’s in Olongapo City offers three kinds of pastillas de leche, the soft type from Bulacan, the hard, brittle one from Zambales, and a chewy type with flavors like mango, macapuno and cheese.

  7. ivyjelly says:

    Sevilla’s has a booth in Market Market. They have the pastillas in microwavable containers I think it’s 50php each.

    I miss those pastillas, especially the “tostado” ones.
    Can I order on-line from the CLSU or DVF Farms?

  9. czar says:

    pastillas products were delicious and a good form of sweets.
    but, here is a new innovative product out of pastillas. i myself will have a project feasibility study about producing pastillas out of papaya as flavoring.. dont you think its a good idea???

    Aug 14, 2005 | 3:51 am

     
  10. Marketman says:

    I suppose there are plain milk pastillas, ube pastillas, etc. so why not try a papaya pastillas? Extracting the papaya “flavor” would be interesting but I haven’t seen it in anything else… why the study? Just get into a kitchen and try it out and see if it works…

  11. Jess says:

    I just love the soft, melt-in-the-mouth pastillas de leche from San Miguel, Bulacan. My late mother used to be my supplier. I live in New York and she never failed to send me a box or two whenever she had an opportunity for a “pakidala.” She must have had her own suppliers because she never had any problem finding it. I get disappointed when someone gives me what is claimed as pastillas de leche and it turns out to be the hard kind. Now that my mother is gone, I have to rely on my relatives to satisfy my craving. Hello, relatives and friends in Manila and Davao – are you listening?

  12. io says:

    You are right marketman. The taste of pastillas made from carabao’s milk is vastly different from cow’s milk. The texture and aftertaste of the carabao milk pastillas is certainly superior. Today, my sister and I savored the taste of pastillas de leche which we received by rush package and felt that christmas has finally arrived!

    Dec 19, 2005 | 10:02 pm

     
  13. Marketman says:

    io, glad you have finally tried pastillas made from carabao’s milk…now you can’t go back to cow’s milk versions again…

  15. Jessica says:

    I just got a pasalubong of Sevilla Sweets Pastillas De Leche, made from ofcourse, Carabao’s milk. They are soooooo good!
    The commercialized pastillas from a well known bake shop, starts with letter G——-, is no comparisson to Sevilla’s. Is there anyway I can order online and have it imported to the US? Sevilla Sweets are you listening!!!!

    May 20, 2006 | 5:49 pm

     
  16. Marketman says:

    Jessica, I hope someone else knows if you can order these online but I am not aware of any sellers of this product. The product has a very short shelf life and it is unlikely that anyone has obtained FDA approval for small quantity exports so I suspect your only bet is pasalubongs or bilins from relatives… The best pastillas are eaten with 5-7 days of their manufacture…

    dulce gatas!!! it’s a pity that there’s no establishment here that sell this decadent Negrense dessert!!! compared to pastillas de carabao, dulce gatas has a sweeter more yummier caramelly taste.

    May 31, 2006 | 1:41 pm

     
  18. Marketman says:

    juls, if I am not mistaken, I think a reader a while back said someone at Market!Market! Mall was selling dulce gatas in small containers (at one of the regional stalls)… you may want to check it out the next time you are in the vicinity.

  19. Cupcake_diva says:

    Hi Marketman! Do you mind sharing your recipe? I have a bottle of Carabao’s milk that will soon reach its expiration … I don’t want it to go to waste, sayang naman! Thanks!

    Jun 29, 2006 | 3:19 pm

     
  20. Marketman says:

    cupcake diva, from what I understand, put a liter of milk into a pan over medium heat, stir till your arm falls off, and the milk is reduced to 1/4 the volume, add about 1/3 cup of sugar and some grated dayap peel and cook some more until firmish and roll on a bed of sugar into your desired shapes…I have to try it soon…

    hi. i love eating pastillas out of carabao milk. may i have a copy of your feasibility study. i would like to try the product if it would be profitable in my community. thanks.

    hi MM!! i miss pastillas de leche a lot.. my grandmother is from san miguel bulacan but i never had the chance to watch/learn how it is done but we always bring home several boxes and like what you said, it can be easily consumed in less than a day..where can i find good pastillas de leche here in manila???

  26. Jonathan says:

    hi Marketman,
    Would you know where I can get carabao milk here in Metro Manila or in provinces near Metro Manila? Hopefully in bulk orders? Thanks :)

    Jul 28, 2006 | 1:39 am

     
  27. Marketman says:

    Jonathan, there are several retail sellers of carabao milk at the Salcedo market and other upper end markets…perhaps you can check thme out and ask if they do bulk sales…they are pricey already, however…

  28. Aimee says:

    Everyone! Sevilla Sweets definitely has the best pastillas de leche ever! They always use the freshest carabao’s milk from Nueva Ecija. They have branches in Shoppesville Greenhills, Market! Market!, Tiendesitas, Sta. Lucia, SM Mall of Asia, SM Marilao, Bulancan, Shangri-la Mall, EDSA, Robinson’s Galleria, they also have a branch in Cebu and of course their main branch is in San Miguel, Bulacan. This is really worth your money! I mean every single bite of it! Also, they have other flavors of pastillas like Langka, Cheese and Ube. You should also try their Macapuno Balls! YUMMY!!!! Too bad they still don’t have any site yet for the balikbayans to actually purchase this online.. But I really hope that they will be able to market their products online to satisfy our fellow Filipinos abroad! Right? =)

  29. Sheila says:

    Hi there. Firstly I must thank you all for such wonderful insight into the true filipino culture. I didnt think I was bad at all but after reading all the comments I felt rather uneducated about my own culture. Anyway the reason I found this website is because I’m actually looking for a Yema recipe. I was born and raised in Australia but we visited Philippines quite frequently and I love these things….as well as the Pastillas De Leche. Anyway Im having a bunch of my girlfriends over for dinner tommorrow night and thought I’d whip up something new and yummy for them to try….but now that I have googled recipes I seem far more confused. I have never seen or even heard of yema balls, I only know the ones wrapped in Cellophane. After comparing recipes it seems that they are so similar and now I feel stuck. Help! Sorry to be a pain! xoxo Sheila

  30. Marketman says:

    Sheila, yema as shown here, http://www.marketmanila.com/archives/yema is the egg yolk mixture/ball but coated in caramelized sugar. This is the version you sometimes see wrapped in cellophane. It is considered the older or more classic way to present it and the caramel neutralizes and balances the egginess of the yema. I also tried a fairly well-thought of chef’s recipe for yema here… http://www.marketmanila.com/archives/yemas-egg-yolk-and-sugar-wonder if you want to give it a go. Yema balls as a name is a dumb one, frankly as translated they would mean yolk balls or something to that effect. It’s just that many serve the egg yolk mixture in a ball form to make it look like an egg yolk… Thanks for visiting Marketmanila!

    im planning to make a small sid sideline bussiness which is pastillas de leche,coz easy to made and wise buget for a starting woman like me.isn’t?

    Sep 25, 2006 | 7:31 am

     
  32. Marketman says:

    armie, as long as the ones you make taste extra good, made from fresh carabao’s milk and sugar then you may have a good product. However, remember that pastillas spoil or get hard pretty fast and you should have a way to distribute or market them properly… good luck!

  33. sosie says:

    Yup it’s good to have… like that

    Hi! There’s this pastillas called Galaxy. I think it’s from Sta. Maria, Bulacan. It’s quite different from Sevilla’s kasi it’s not so soft pero it’s very chewy and tastes good, it’s a lot cheaper also. Nakakaubos kami ng 4 packs while watching tv.

    I live in New York City where one is supposed to be able to purchase anything and alas, I’ve not found a location where I can purchase carabao milk candy anywhere! And even online I’ve drawn a blank. Any online exporters you might lead me to?

    Also: my fav milk candy has always been the flat rectangular individually tissue-wrapped no outside sugar variety from Tuguegarao Cagayan — “Alcala Valley Sweets” (844-3534). Simply divine.

    I’ve just come upon the best pastillas de leche that I’ve ever had so far. In Alabang. One orders them via text thru a guy named Mike (details in my blog) – he has the pastillas made fresh upon order and then delivers the box. It’s kinda pricier than the regular pastillas de leche, but worth it, I think. It’s called Miggy’s Jumbo Pastillas.

  43. liaa says:

    i eat pastillas all the time. the most conveneient is Sevilla’s because I can buy fr Shang mall and Greenhills and Market Market. I also tried Sitsirya’s ala cow label (hard but ok na if you are craving; found in Mercury Drug) Sitsirya’s individually wrapped long ones were chewy. Not bad…

  44. Frances Johnson says:

    I just recently came back from a short vacation from Philippines, bought a lot of “Sevilla’s Sweet’s Pastillas De Leche” for presents or pasalubong. OH MY GOD! I was so embarassed when my husband bought it and they found that each piece were with mold on it. I did not believe hi, until I opened a fresh box (which was expensive too!) and was ready for a taste when I saw it was indeed molded. How can I report this and so others won’t be embarassed like I was!

    Oct 31, 2007 | 2:53 pm

     
  45. Marketman says:

    Frances, you should inform the outlet that you bought it from, that is awful. Having said that, pastillas really should be refrigerated if you are eating them 1-2 days after you purchase them. They do not keep for long in the tropical heat and humidity…they are made from milk, after all.

    I also love eating pastillas from San Miguel bulacan, because my living great-grandmother would give us one every new year (they are from san miguel). And I remembered my folks buying from San Miguel or Malolos about 3 yrs ago where you can buy in bulk, and just do the repackaging your self.

    Alcala’s pastillas are really good as well. You can buy it from their distributor in Manila. Just place an order in advance.

Comes pa in a nice cute box so it’s ready to be given out as a gift. It’s not available anytime so you need to order in advance especially if you’re going on a trip and plan to bring as pasalubong. I try to keep a stock in the house for my kids and myself.

They supply pastillas to some major Bulacan Candy Stores (w/out their name printed on it, syempre!)..even the Former First Lady of the Philippines dito nag oorder pag December for her grandchildren.. Yun nga lang they do not have a store here sa Manila. Before, may kumukuha sa kanila sinusupply nmn sa SM, when my friend saw the retail price, as in nagulat sya, almost Triple the price!!! But still, i get my order every week kasi my friend brings it here in my place at Sampaloc. I’m asured na it’s really masarap at bagong luto. By the way, orders yun ng mga officemates ko… If you are interested to try and taste their candies, email me at belle_2k4@yahoo.com or YM me at belle_2k4..

    market man , you have been a bundle of joy to me. most of my favorites, intestinally have been covered by your web. one thing i dont like with you is you dont respond to your commentator. and honestly i hate it. but still here i am daily follower of your thing.

    market man, please feature a langgoniza batotay and examine it with your expertise. i really enjoy the way you analyze food. why dont you feature some favorite songs of yours. are you fond of guitar ?

    bye !!!!!

    mel, actually I do try to respond to comments that have a specific question if I can add value. I generally do not comment to questions that are of a commercial nature, or for whom I don’t have a credible or good answer. And generally, it is easier for me to track newer posts than lder ones like this one, as there 2000+ posts in the archives. With nearly 150 comments a day and 50+ emails, it is impossible to respond to all of them. Sorry, I have never tried a longganiza batotay.

    How long can the pastillas stay in the fridge before consumption? We bought it during our vacation and we are back in Canada since Jan. 3, 2009. What is the expiry date of these pastillas?

    Jojo, YOWKS! I wouldn’t keep pastillas in the fridge for longer than a week or two, at most. Not three months! I would throw them out.
