Linupak nga Pilipig/Pinipig

Linupak is a process of pounding starchy ingredients. In Samar, young glutinous grains are pan-roasted, followed by the synchronized thumping of three people using traditional mortar and pestle. Grated coconut meat, brown sugar, and condensed milk give a medley of sweet and earthy flavors with a gooey texture. They are placed in molds for easy bites and street selling.
