Eating The Fresh Alugbati Shoots

The alugbati stalks I planted months ago has been growing well. It almost cover the 1/4 part of the bamboo fence. The fence is becoming reddish from afar. Still a chicken’s favorite but they are too lazy to fly over and feed to higher portions. Flowers begin to show. Many shoots are elongating outwards and seem talking to me. They seem begging, wanting me to pick and eat them raw.

Every alugbati stalk as long as open palm is succulent. Slightly pungent when chewed but can be tolerated with practice or dipping in plain mayonnaise before taking in.

What are you waiting for? Open that palm of yours. Measure and cut alugbati stalks. Wash it under running water. Rinse well. Take your favorite dip and start the enjoyment.
