This is the way puto bumbong is cooked...the mixed ingredients are placed inside this bamboo cannons and steamed till the mixture darkens. You don't want to overcook it 'cause the mixture will pop out of the cannon...making it hard for you to catch it...if you can! :)

Puto Bumbong is a delicacy that is especially made for Christmas. "Puto" means steamed glutinous rice, and "bumbong" means bamboo cannon. It is a purple-colored food cooked in standing bamboo or metal tubes attached to a steam-producing tin can or cylinder that is mounted on a small pot of boiling water or steam.

Puto bumbong is made of ordinary glutinous rice, pirurutong (glutinous wild rice), butter, muscovado, sesame seeds and grated coconut.

The end of "Simbang Gabi" or Dawn Mass ends the selling of puto bumbong here in our city.

Kasi na accomodate ako ng mamang ito while taking pictures. Hinintay niya talaga na matapos ko shot eh sumobra nga sa luto at biglang pop! Parang kanyon talaga! Hindi niya siempre na catch! LOL Buti na lang at mabait sila. Tawa kami ng tawa!
