How to Make Filipino sago at gulaman (sweet beverage)
2-3 cups sago
2 pcs gulaman
3 cups water
3 cups sugar
ice-cold water or crushed ice
To cook sago: In a saucepan, boil water and put in uncooked sago. Stir constantly to prevent them from sticking. Drain and rinse. Set aside.
To cook gulaman: Boil water in a saucepan and put in uncooked gulaman. When it has dissolved in the water, strain thoroughly. Set aside to cool, then cut into cubes.
To make arnibal (sugar syrup): Over medium heat, caramelize sugar. When melted, pour in water and continue cooking to make sure that the sugar is dissolved completely. Set aside to cool. Put some arnibal on the sago to sweeten the latter.
Put some sago and gulaman in glasses. Sweeten by adding enough arnibal. Add ice-cold water or crushed ice.
