When I was young, I would suck this lump of solidified sugarcane juice like candy. But now, I like using this as sweetener for coffee whenever available, and I got that from the Ilocanos.


Looked simple but it’s very laborious to appear like that with all the repeated hand pulling (after the sugarcane juice was boiled and cooled), to make it white and solid but not stony. And then it has to be curled by hand.
