Galunggong is in season in the Visayas right now. If you run out of idea what to do with galunggong aside from frying or broiling it, you can create a variety of recipes or twist to make your meals enjoyable. Escabecheng galunggong is one of the recipes your family will truly love. It is nutritious and less costly. Since bell pepper is a bit expensive, you can use siling espada or siling mahaba instead. Instead of sugar, I use homemade tomato jam for this recipe.
