All Moms are special, including my Mom.
Every time Mother’s Day arrives, I always remember special foods that my Mom cooked for me during my childhood.
No doubt that there’s a powerful connection between my Mom and foods. After all, it was my Mom who fed me my first meal and most of the foods I ate growing up. My Mom comforted me with my favorite soup, cheer me up with sweet treat, and made my favorite meals just because she loved me.
To sweeten Mother’s Day, I would like to share a simple sweet treat locally known as “Manisan Kolang Kaling” (candied palm fruit) which my Mom often made for me and my sisters as sweet treat when we were kids.
What is ‘Kolang Kaling’?
