“This traditional recipe is a part of the Christmas and New Year food tradition in the Philippines. Many traditional Filipino holiday foods have a strong Spanish influence. This recipe is for serving straight away but Morcon is easier to slice when allowed to cool and much better after having been refrigerated. If ground ham and pork is not available, use a can of Vienna sausages.”
