Sukang Pinakurat

Good day everyone! I was invited here to post as co-author. I wanted to wait for the first post before I post but as a blogger, whenever I got ideas regarding the topic, I can't seem to control my hands from typing and sharing to you my ideas. (^__^) Visit me at my blog. Just click here.

Anyways, I want to share to you all my favorite sawsawan, dip. The pride of Iliganons, Sukang Pinakurat. Whenever we buy this dip, a 250mL bottle would be gone within just 1-2 days. Seriously, it is that good. You can do almost anything with it. You can use it as a dip with just about anything; fried fish, bulad(dried fish), inihaw na isda(grilled fish), lechon, etc. The most amazing part of it is that you can use sukang pinakurat as a sabaw(sauce) over just rice. That's the case for us who can't get enough of it.

Pinakurat is a Cebuano word that means "to be shocked". "Sukang Pinakurat was born out of desperation eight years ago when life dealt former Iligan restaurateur, Rene Jose Stuart del Rosario, 54, a double whammy—his restaurant business closed and his health failed." [1]

What started as a small micro cottage enterprise is now blooming and developing as a small and medium enterpirse. This product is not just popular here in Iligan but is also in the Philippines and is beginning to be recognized by other countries. Its exotic and spicy taste tickles the taste buds of westerners.

"Green Gold Gourmet’s response to this public demand of a famous product spawned 14 other creations to date, among them: Suka Waykurat (the milder version of sukang Pinakurat); Kuratsoy (Pinakurat blended with soy sauce and calamansi); Sweetened Pinakurat; Chigar (chili garlic sauce); Naprik (spicy pork alamang); Kulikot (flaming-hot chili pepper sauce); Pure Suka Tuba; Garlic Chips; and Garlic Crunch." [1]

You got to try Sukang Pinakurat and see for yourself! Makuratan jud ka!(You will be shocked!) God bless to us all!
