It’s that time of year again and it is literally raining santol at our home and I suspect most of the Southern Tagalog provinces are at the peak of the santol harvest. I just thought I would post this to remind those of you in high-rise airconditioned offices and apartments or homes who haven’t been to the wet markets lately to savor this wonderful fruit at its peak… I have done 5 previous posts on santol before…
For a wonderful, quick easy and spectacularly refreshing drink, make a pitcher of santol juice.
And if you make the preserves, you can then make these fantastic santol turnovers.
Finally, if you want to cook with it, I tried this santol at sugpo sa gata recipe.
I’m going to see how many kilos we pull down from the trees this morning and decide if I am going to make some preserves this year… It’s been ages since I have enjoyed a brined santol (in salt), but maybe I might give that a go as well. And definitely, some santol juice!!! Enjoy!
