Our porky adventures continue in this section.

PAGASA says it will be declaring the start of the rainy season on Friday. This means less sun, less heat and a good occasion to eat pork to keep us all heated up.

Sound the trumpets! The pork feet are marching in! This is Kadios, Baboy, Langka! KBL – not the political party of Apo and Meldy. This is the decent thing (ahem)!

Let’s call in the ingredients:

Pata front – front pig feet has more meat but you can also add in half a kilo of pata back if you want more cartilage and bones that make the soup more delicious and rich

Half a kilo of sliced jackfruit
Batwan (or any souring agent but as they say, of all the trees in the forest, batuan is best)
Kadios (pigeon peas)
Fresh chilis (depending on how much you love or hate your mother-in-law who’s staying for lunch)

Boil the pork feet with kadios until tender.
Add the langka slices then the batuan then the chilis.
