sSteamed glutinous rice wrapped in banana leaves, Suman has been an all-time favorite food; a staple during the Holiday Season. I've known a cousin named Norma who has been in the business of making Suman for over 30 decades; probably inheriting it from our forefathers. Known to have originated in a barrio called Toclong or "Lupang Kawit", Suman is a part of Kawit (Cavite) culture. I took these photos while I indulge on a bar of Suman complete with shredded coconut and traditional brown sugar called "paldo". Yummy.
