Heavenly treats from Santa Rita

Kampampangan historian Don Mariano Henson listed Pampanga as one of the most prosperous provinces in the 1930s. The cash crop that made it wealthy? Sugarcane. This abundance of sweetness produced heavenly treats such as the turrones de casuy and sansrival.

The cashew nougat of the turrones de casuy is wrapped in white paper-like wafer, which might remind you of Mass on Sundays. The sansrival is made of layers of crushed cashew, butter, and eggs. It’s a family recipe that the Ocampo-Lansang’s delicacies have kept secret for almost a hundred years.
