Appetizers Series #1: Mamang Puring’s Atchara

Most Pinoys love a hearty meal

A one-viand meal is a no-no

There has to be at least two different “ulams” to boot

Anything more than that is considered a premium

Especially so when that extra treat is as good as this appetizer

Mamang Puring’s Atchara is a labor of love and hardwork

It started in a little kitchen in Barangay Ligaya

Given away as gift to friends it slowly gained popularity

Mamang Puring is the mother of my former co-employee Leah Cunanan

I used to give my two-centavo worth of comments about it

And Leah made sure that their atchara was improved to perfection

When Leah married Geov, a Marketing specialist, the rest they say is history

Still homemade, the “lowly” atchara was “re-engineered” to what it is now

Packaged as a worthy pasalubong in a tetra-packed plastic

One pack at 35 pesos is indeed a steal

Now it tastes even better — with more kick and more wallop

The papaya shreds doesn’t taste slimy at all

Its other pickled ingredients of carrots, onions, red bell pepper, pineapple and raisins

Which are generously part of the package complemented the papaya shreds

Its sweet and sourness goes very well with any fried viand you’re having

It was so yummy that I consumed one pack in one sitting

Again, this goes well with anything fried or grilled — ANYTHING!

Mamang Puring’s Atchara is manufactured 3 Dels Food Industries, Eustaquio Cunanan Compound, Purok 5, Barangay Ligaya, General Santos City.  For inquiries and order, you may contact Leah Cunanan-Delfin at 0917-714-508.
