food moments: DUHAT

duhat

Duhat is a local Philippine fruit which is oval in shape and has a dark purple and almost black in color. It is also referred as Java Plum.

Whenever I am having a taste of this sweet-like fruit, I used to remember how we climbed up to the Duhat tree in the backyard with it spreading branches just to pick and collect more of its one-seeded fruit in a basket when my friends and I were young back in the days. After that, we’re going to put the collected duhat inside a closed container, sprinkle it with rock salt… then slightly shaking it for a while. Grabbing some and enjoying the taste of it with my folks. Others just dip it in rock salt if they don’t want to do the “shaking thing”.

Food isn’t really all about satisfying your tummy but leaving you a lasting memory to laugh about with your friends.
