This one is a simple recipe using banana blossoms and cooked in coconut milk. Some do serve this as an appetizer or a side dish. The mixture of vinegar and coconut makes this dish appetizing.

If you are using fresh puso ng saging make sure to remove the sap first by chopping the banana blossoms and soaking in salt for few minutes. Rinse in running water and squeeze to remove excess water before you start cooking.

3 cloves garlic, minced
