Linidgid nga mais

Followers of Flavours of Iloilo on Facebook shared this interesting delicacy from this north central town of Iloilo. Called linidgid na mais, this native treat from Lambunao is a mixture of corn, coconuts and sugar. Made using the pilit variety of corn "shredded" the old fashioned (tin cans with nail-punched holes) then combined with young coconuts and sugar to taste. The mixture is then wrapped in banana leaves then tied at the top like a pouch and steamed for around two hours. The effort made in making this delicacy s greatly rewarded with a delicious native treat.

Thank you to Marilyn Manzanida for the photos and the related info.
