Did you know that the humble pili fruit is a delicacy us Bicolanos are proud of? Just use a nut cracker and eat the nut raw. Or some turn the nut to sweets ala peanut brittle.
For me, I take it for lunch. Collect the ripe pili fruits and place in warm water for a few minutes. When the fruit soften remove the black skin and nut shell and dip in fish or soy sauce. Use salt or even sugar if you want. Eat to your heart’s content. Yummy! That’s lunch for me!
