tikoy Gumaca

tikoy Gumaca – (ti-koy gu-má-ka; Quezon delicacy) [n.] tikoy wrapped in anahaw palm. The tikoy in it is prepared like the conventional tikoy using ground glutinous rice, butter, and ground sugar as the main ingredients.

What makes Gumaca tikoy unique is that it is wrapped in dried leaves of anahaw palm. The tikoy is stuffed into a tubular cellophane wrapper (or the usual large ice-candy plastic wrapper), and layers of anahaw leaves are then wrapped lengthwise around the filled plastic tube and tied on both ends.



The finished product would look like a long pike of unhusked corn - distinct and appealing packaging.
