Polvoron

10


10 per unit Virtual OK

Polvoron is a treat that every Filipino child seems to know and learn how to make! I first made this in my last orphanage in the Philippines.

We cooked them and placed them in paper cones... to eat! This is the clasic way it is served. Today when you go to Filipino shops and bakery. You will find many variants of polvoron but most are wrapped like candy, in plastic, or with Japanese paper. I prefer mine served warm just after being made and in a paper cone!

Polvoron Facts

A polvorón (From polvo, the Spanish word for powder, or dust; Cebuano: polboron; Tagalog: pulburón) is a type of heavy, soft and very crumbly Spanish shortbread made of flour, sugar, milk, and nuts, especially almonds. They are produced mostly in Andalusia, where there are about 70 factories in that are part of a syndicate that produces polvorones and mantecados. Under the name mantecados, these sweets are a traditional preparation of other areas of the Iberian Peninsula as well.

Polvorones are popular holiday delicacies in all Spain and its former colonies in Latin America and the Philippines. Traditionally, they were prepared from September to January but are now available all year round. Polvorones were brought to Spain by the Moors and there is thus a very possible Levantine origin, based on a similar sweet known as ghurayba. As this was introduced by the Arabs, during the Spanish Inquisition, it was later decreed by the officials of the Inquisition that polvorones were to be made using pork fat as a means of detecting secret Jews and Muslims within the Southern Spanish regions.

Training & Qualifications


I am Filipino and enjoy Filipino food!

Polvoron is a childhood favorite of mine as a dessert or snack. I tend to enjoy this in remembrance of my life as an orphan in the Philippines. It is, therefore, my wish to share this for our simbi community to enjoy as much as I do for FREE in my Monthly Recipe Giveaway! So if you are low in simbi points wait for the giveaway! The only thing I ask in return is you comment below this service on how you liked/disliked, lessons learned, as well as how the recipe turned out for you!

About Gerwin Legaspi

A little about me or as I like to call it, about me in a nutshell. I was Born in the Philippines, the youngest of five. I was separated from my family and ended up in an orphanage with three of my bro...thers. At the age of 9 I was adopted to a wonderful family and lived in NC, MN, and OH. I joined the Navy in '05, became a Corpsman and got out in 2013 and about a year later moved to San Diego. I have been interested in the Eastern/Oriental Arts all my life. In particular, their theory and concept of energy. I moved to SD so I could expand my knowledge and understanding at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Where it became very clear to me that my passion and career would be separate. As I found my biological family in the Philippines, I decided to hold school and go back to work so that I could help provide for them. I currently work as a Health Tech in Veteran's Health Systems-La Jolla but my passion remains true. For my friends and family, I offer various modalities from Energy Work, Gua Sha, Acupoints, Meditation and numerous styles of bodywork or massage: Thai, Deep Tissue, Tui Na, Swedish. I now offer my particular set of skills to our symbiotic economy here at simbi. I love conversation of philosophy and concepts and theories but as an introvert, I also tend to like my isolation. I love nature and animals. In general, I enjoy being in the outdoors. I used to read a great deal and can offer my skills critiquing written work. I am no stranger to hard labor but like many people, I would prefer to relax. When the need arises, however, I can offer help in moving, yard work, and pretty much anything else. I have a love for technology, I guess I am a bit nerdy this way... but I used to design websites and create them old school style using HTML coding via notes.... lol. Yes at that time we painstakingly remembered and memorized certain coding formats in terms of header and body as well attaching things like images and links... there is a code for nearly everything and as such my second passion will always be technology! This was during my high-school years and was just for fun, if I had never joined the Navy I would probably have gone to IT school but at any rate I am still quite proficient on most tech-related subjects. From Web-design to MS Excel. I guess I am a software junky... don't ask me anything about hardware though ;) I have recently gotten very interested in the past year and a half or so in stock trading through Robinhood. I was an advent user of Loyal3 for a while until they shut down. I can offer you a FREE stock by using this link: share.robinhood.com/gerwinl (can be found below in the link section) as well as provide you with advice in regards to stocks. I love Robinhood because like simbi it is FREE and does not charge for each transaction. I tend to try and be as honest as I can and am open to any conversation. I am excited about Simbi because when I work on people, I prefer the traditional method where I am paid for in food, gas, lodging or simply good company. With that said keep an eye out for my upcoming services as they will range from various aspect and interest throughout my life. I am also an aspiring author and you can check out my author page on Amazon along with my current published work using KDP: https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B06VXL14Y4 so I can answer questions you may have if you aspire to publish your own book one day for free!show more
