Humba

This is the sweet-style adobo recipe your sweet tooth will crave!

If you love ulam recipes that are sweet, then this recipe is for you! 

The humba is a Southern Philippine recipe. It's likened to the adobo but only as far as the main ingredients are concerned. The taste is where you know this is a different recipe. The sweetness from the sugar and the sourness from the vinegar make for an interesting contrast in taste with every bite.

So, how do you make humba?  

Just like you would make adobo, you start with the marinade ingredients. However, there is the addition of sugar to the mix, changing the flavor profile of the entire recipe completely. To further cement that fact it's different, banana blossoms (or in some areas, saba bananas) and wood-ear mushrooms are added to the mix, too.

Sound delicious? It is, and it's a regional recipe that's easy to make at home.
