Are you familiar with Sumang Balinghoy or Cassava? Cassava is called kamonteng kahoy in our hometown. The cassava can be cooked in various ways like sumang balinghoy, cassava cake, minatamis na kamoteng kahoy or dessert, nilupak, chips cassava, flour, etc. Cassava is the one have largest carbohydrates in the world. By the way Cassava is very rich in starch and contains significant amounts of calcium, dietary fibre, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin b6 and vitamin C. Anyway, aside from the cassava root, the cassava leaves is used for our menu like ginataang dahon ng balinghoy.

Anyway, every merienda time I will buy to my neighbors store because she is a vendor of all kakanin but sometimes I will cook our merienda or snack if I am in good mood condition hehe. That time she sells her Sumang Balinghoy, and then I will try to buy for our merienda time. So I bought two pair of suman for the cost of 8pesos only for one pair. I don’t know if the Sumang Balinghoy would like to eat Vince because he never tastes it but I will try to nourish him. Good thing because he likes the taste of Sumang Balinghoy, he really enjoy and feel to eat. So I took a photo while Vince eaten the Suman.
