Nut traders at the old market building in Dumaguete

On Colon Street in the city of Dumaguete, starting at the Campanario de Dumaguete, the old watchtower next to the cathedral in the direction of the market, there are some old market buildings. This is where I found the nut vendors.

The nuts are the small peanuts and the large coconuts. There is also a woman there who grinds the peanuts into peanut butter with the addition of brown sugar and butter.

The coconut traders offer the old, fully ripe, brown coconuts. The hard flesh is grated out of these nuts and the coconut milk is squeezed out. This coconut milk is used in many Filipino dishes.

The young coconuts are opened and the water, together with the young, still soft flesh, can be drunk and eaten as a refreshment.

Try it yourself the next time you visit the market.
