On our way back to where we parked, we have to pass by the coconut vendor again. I know those are not young coconut but just have to buy some as "Tambal sa ka hidlaw"(cure for the cravings) I bought 6 coconut. And true they were not young enough. The meat close to the eye are tender than the other half of the fruit. I could not find my utensil for scraping the meant . So I had to slice the coconut meat so thinly. It was good ! Every body at dinner time who had some said "Lami lagi, Magsigi man ta ug ka-on bisan ug busog na".(It is so good that I cant stop eating eveen when I'm already full")
For the even tougher coconut meat, I also slice them so thinly and cook them into bukhayo. I hate to throw the rest away because it was not so cheap. It was 2 for $5. I use the 5 and left one for my brother , Noel who was sick that week. It took a long time to cook then hoping it would be tender. It was just a bit tender after more than 6 hrs of slow cooking. Mama Cesla and I enjoyed it so much.
It was so good to last bite.
