Lately, I’ve been trying to collect stories of the old days, especially the lifestyles of the locales of Sorsogon. My aunt, who grew up in Castilla, told me about canned sardines as a fancy dish in the 30’s.
She said, she and her sister would go to their cousin’s house nearby. Their aunt would open a can of sardines for them and they would eat it with gusto. I was really surprised, considering that canned sardines nowadays are quite common. But my aunt said that it was different then.
Quite interesting story.
