This is an online cooking demo by Chef Ronald Villavelez on how to make Katmon cider.

Katmon, locally called bolobayaua, belongs to a family of flowering plants that grown in low to medium altitude forests. Katmon fruits are quite fleshy, eaten when green and have a taste similar to green sour apples. The fresh fruit is not especially flavorful, but due to its acidity and juiciness, it is refreshing when eaten. It makes an excellent sauce or jam and it is also used for flavoring. For example, It can be added to pinakbet (a traditional Filipino vegetable and pork dish) as a souring ingredient.

The objective of this cooking demo is to ensure the survival of this endangered tree, by showing people its benefits and teaching them how to use its fruits in a unique way.
