turones de casuy

when i see a can of turones, i instinctively look for a spoon, the latter being the best tool to open up the lid πŸ™‚

it’s always fun watching first-timers try to figure out how to eat this treat. some remove the “paper” cover (actually made of egg whites and flour) carefully — a tough task since it normally really sticks to the nougat. the ocampo-lansang brand from sta. rita is the only turones i know, since this is what we grew up with. up till now they’re very consistent with the quality (whole, real cashews in the candy). the younger generation in the house has taken to this with love.

    you may have heard this story a hundred times so feel free to do the “twilight zone” theme here πŸ™‚ β€” but my dad's aunt, the one in sta. rita who practically raised him, made turones from scratch, so that includes the pabalat (i tried my hand at it a few times when i was a child). she used to supply hostia (communion wafer) as well so there was this huge gear in her workroom that kinda looked like a paper puncher but with eucharistic symbols.

    anyway, i love turones (i can eat an entire can if left alone) and i laughed over the spoon mention because that's exactly what you need to open the can! i know they also come in plastic bags now but the can is more “authentic.” padalan mu ku! πŸ˜›
