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 marks the end of selling puto bumbong here in our city.
