Sweet Camias | Things to do in Lobo-Batangas
|Address:||Poblacion, Lobo, Batangas|
Lobo is recognized as the main producer of tamarind candy in Batangas province. The mountains of Lobo are lined with tamarind trees, many of them over a century-old. The locals harvest the ripened fruits, lay them to dry under the sun, and cook them in brown sugar. Tamarinds are very seasonal, and they're usually available either on April to October or January to May. You can get this seedless or with seeds, and Lobo's sweet tamarind will not disappoint. You would be surprised how something that's usually so sour can taste really sweet.
The abundance of tamarind trees in Lobo brought forth the Tamarind wine, a product of the locals' creativity and eagerness to share their delicacies with visitors. It is a swee-tasting wine made from fermented tamarind juice and would pair well with a slightly sweet snack.
Silverfish, locally known as “Dulong”, is wrapped in Banana leaves and steamed with a bit of salt. Some prefer to squeeze calamansi juice on the dish while others cook it with some sampaloc or camias. It's quite a tasty dish, best paired with rice or as a snack. You can contact Salome Romero at 09154740323 for orders.
