ALAGAW/ALAGAO (Premma odorata). May puno ng alagaw sa aming daanan. Di ko agad alam na ito pala ay alagaw/alagao. Di rin kilala ng may-ari ng bakuran na alagaw pala to. Kaya ayan, walang nagtangkang mamitas ng talbos para sa pinaksiw nila. Ngayon alams na. Uunahan ko na. hehehe. Ang bunga ay parang bignay paborito ng mga ibon. Paghinog na ay itim at ubos agad bago sisikatan ng araw. Malas ng kotse na paparada sa ilalim ng puno kapag namumunga at nahihinog. Tuldok tuldok na mga ipot ng ibon ang aabutin nyan hahaha. #alagaw #alagao #edibleleaf #fragrantPremmaTree #abgaw #alagaw #argaw #duragaw #anobran #PremmaOdorata #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #EdgiePilistico

With Sir Domingo A. Madulid, a botanist and former plant scientist IV of the National Museum, Manila. He wrote several books and scientific articles on Philippine plants, among which is the Pictorial Cyclopedia of Philippine Ornamental Plants. He is involved also in the writing of the Flora of the Philippines and the conservation of rare, endemic, and endangered plants. Here, I sat with him at the porch of his house in Marikina City with his wife Rose when I visited them to pick up my autographed copies of his A Dictionary of Philippine Plant Names, volumes I and II. I also availed from him a copy of Fr. Manuel Blanco's Flora de Filipinas 5th edition that he edited with updates in 2017. #DomingoAMadulid #Botanist #PhilippinePlantsDictionary #dictionary #DictiomaryPh #plantDictionary #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #botanicalnames #SettingFootprints #EdgiePolistico

SAGING BALAYANG of Ilocos used in making INARTEM A BALAYANG - Ilocano pickled wild green, seedy banana of Ilocos Norte. Balayang is a variety of native wild banana you can find in Ilocos Norte. Until now I cannot find the subspecies name of this Musa plant. This could be a relative if Musa textilis popularly know as abaca being slender and too seedy. The inartem (pickle) is made with thinly sliced green balayang banana, salt, sugar, and sukang Iloko (preferably the "baak" one). Combined well altogether, then stored for at least a week to ferment.To serve, a deep bowl is laid with lots of granulated sea salt. Then a scoop of inartem a balayang is placed on top and ready for dining or taken as pansira gana, while some would take it as their merienda (snack). #balayang #inartemabalayang #inartem #saging #pakol #butuan #pakil #butoan #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #EdgiePolistico #Ilocos #IlocanoFood #Ilocano #fermentedbanana #saltedbanana #bananaPh #banana #wildbanana

ALUGBATI SAUCE - This creation of Siglo Modern Filipino caught me by surprise. I found this last year. Like you, I wondered how comes the alugbati becomes too red-purple in this spread. Aha! That must be because we only eat too much of the leaves. We forgot or most of us are not aware that alugbati, after sometime, would bear plenty of never-ending flowers and fruits. The fruits produce deep red-purple extracts when ripe and for sure was used in here. I remember when young girls in our barrio would use it to stain their nails pretending it as "cutex " Tell us Dorothy Joy Tung. I'm dying to get the recipe. #alugbatisauce #alugbati #sauce #redpurple #vegetablesauce #dip #spread #SigloModernFilipino #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #EdgiePilistico

THAI PUMPKIN SWEET CHILI DIP Ayan. Last Sunday ay ginawa kong sawsawan sa ginawa kong pork BBQ (marinated in turmeric sauce, inspired by the Maranao choice of flavor). Yang sawsawan ay gawa sa sukang puti na pinatakan ko ng toyo, kalamansi, at saka isang kutsaritang white sugar. Sarap-anghang. Walang natira sa BBQ hahaha. Napahigop pa ako sa sawsawan.. #ThaiPumpkin #hotchilipepper #chili #sili #silingmaanghang #hotchili #decorativechili #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootPrints #LaTrinidad #Benguet #Luzoni #chilidip #chilisauce #sawsawan #sarapanghang

THAI PUMPKIN hot chili pepper. Kinamatis na siling maanghang. The seeds are hot. Di masyadong maanghang kay sa siling labuyo. Tama lang ang hapdi. Bagay sa di pa sanay sa siling mabagsik. Puwede ring pangdekorasyon sa pagkain. Nahanap at nabili ko po sa La Trinidad, Benguet. Binili ko na rin yong isang puno at inuwi sa bahay dito sa patag (Metro Manila) pero naghihingalong mabuhay kasi nabigla sa altitude change at sa naibang atmospheric pressure. Di bale, subukan kong ipunla ang mga buto next week katapos ko mapatuyo ng husto. #ThaiPumpkin #hotchilipepper #chili #sili #silingmaanghang #hotchili #decorativechili #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootPrints #LaTrinidad #Benguet #Luzon

MIRACLE FRUIT is the local common name of calabash tree and its fruit in Northern Mindanao. The folks cooked the fruit into tea, believed to cure many ailments and uplift one's mood, good for those who are recuperating from sickness and stressful lifestyle. #miraclefruit #calabash #fruitph #settingfootprints #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #Mindanao #edgiepolistico

LUMPIANG GULAY #deconstructed Every time I think of "lumpiang gulay," I always expect it to be like this. Gulay na gulay talaga ang laman. Hindi tauge o ubod ng kawayan. Finally, I found the real one. Thank you Caridad Gumaya of SLU Canteen (Baguio) for serving this.. #lumpianggulay #lumpia #springroll #Baguio #Benguet #SLU #SLUBaguio #reallumpia #lumpiya #PhilippineFoodIllustrated #SettingFootprints #edgiepolistico #cnnfood #PinoyFood #frieddish

Look who I met on my way to Benguet yesterday morning. They have semblance with the Cordilleran stickman sculpture of Igorot hunter. Except the color. Instead of them in small size, it's me getting small. The blue-skinned Na'vi aliens who are inhabitants of Panodra's planet. These towering Avatar aliens were standing along the highway of Sison, Pangasinan. #SisonPangasinan #Avatar #PhilippinesIllustrated #SettingFootprints #edgiepolistico #Luzon #Pangasinan #alien
