Yesterday, where all busy preparing for Fiestas en honor de nuestro Patron San Juan Bautista or Celebration in honor of our Patron Saint John the Baptist for this day here in Garcia-Hernandez, Bohol, Philippines,
We celebrate the fiesta as a thanks for all the blessing we receive every day. In a fiesta day, many dishes and food recipe will appear as a pride of every family like menudo, mechado, humbang baboy (Soured Pork) and many more. But the only dish that we always prepared every fiesta is the Lechon is a pork dish where every province have a different recipe and technique on cooking.
3:00 A.M, we started wash the pork and make sure that hairs on the skin are shaved.
