"Bambukeyo is just simply heavenly regardless of how it's made"


1 breadfruit (bambukeyo)

2 cups sugar

2 3-inch pieces of pandan leaf (ran'ba faiy)

1/2 cup water


- This is not part of the actual recipe, but if you're handling bambukeyo, oil your hands, oil the knife!

- Peel and core the breadfruit

- Cut the breadfruit into bite-sized chunks measuring about an inch long

- Place a pot on the stove at medium heat. Add water, breadfruit and the ran'ba leaves and cook until the breadfruit becomes soft.

- Remove the ran'ba leaves

- Reduce flame to low

- Add in the sugar

- Mix everything together well with a spatula

- Keep cooking until the breadfruit mix becomes thick, cooking for a longer time on low heat will yield better results than trying to hurry things along
