Binutong is a native treat from Bicol province.
How to make binutong?
Cook malagkit (glutinous rice) in gata (coconut cream), sugar, and some salt.
While still not yet fully cooked, place a scoop of the mixture in a spread of layered banana leaves.
Gather the edges of the banana leaves and tied them together to produce a pouch holding the rice mixture inside.
Place the rice-filled pouch (or pouches) in boiling water or thinned gata to continue cooking the rice until done.
Serve binutong with hot chocolate and dried fish.
