One Sour Afternoon

Santol and "Artem"
On my way home from San Miguel, Bulacan last Wednesday, I passed series of fruit stands on road side near the newly opened Plaridel-Bypass Road. Most of them were selling santol. Maybe it is the fruiting season of the said fruit.  I bought a kilo of regular sized for only 30 pesos, about 6 pieces.  At home, I immediately peeled some and soaked it in vinegar from “artem” (an Ilocano term for pickled chili). For me this is the best partner of the santol.

Santol with Vinegar

I was starting drool again upon writing this entry and I want to eat santol!
