Macapuno Bucayo














This is not the usual bucayo (sugared coconut strips) that is readily available in bus stations popular in Laguna, Batangas and Quezon Province. This one is 'lovingly' packaged in a box-type wrapper made from banana trunk (husk?). Also, instead of coconut, its made from macapuno. Peanuts were added to this dessert for a more nutty flavor and I'm guessing, molasses was also used as an added sweetener.

Got this from a seller when we went to La Luz in Batangas.
