Stewed Native Duck in Nipa Wine
A unique way of cooking duck stew using nipa wine or “tuba”. This native wine comes from coconut sap collected by snipping the stem called the florescence and attaching a bamboo pole. The product derived from the sap is either wine or vinegar. Cooking meat using coconut wine has a distinct flavor compared to using ordinary cooking wine.
