Turn on your speakers . . . to an aguinaldo midi sing-a-long. Each week a different aguinado.

Guineitos en Escabeche

Pickled green bananas is easy to prepare but it is not so easy to find green bananas outside of the east coast. They are available mostly where there is a large Caribbean population. You can usually find green bananas at markets that cater to Latinos in general and often you can go the produce vendor and ask them so hold some for you that have not been 'gassed' (gassing is to ripen them faster). Sometimes green bananas can also be found in Asian markets. The recipe is simple, boil the bananas until done. Meanwhile cook the onions and the few other ingredients. After the bananas and the sauce are room temperature mix together. Delicioso! see recipe

El lechón se coge,
se mata y se pela,
El lechón se coge,
se mata y se pela,
se pone en la vara
y se le da candela;
se pone en la vara
y se le da candela.

Se pone en la vara
montado en la orqueta
Se pone en la vara
montado en la orqueta
y entre vuelta y vuelta
se le unta manteca...
y entre vuelta y vuelta
se le unta manteca...

Ese lechoncito
me lo comería,
ese lechoncito
me lo comería,
Con su guineíto,
batata y yautía...
Con su guineíto,
plátano y yautía...

Ese lechoncito
me lo comería,
ese lechoncito
me lo comería,
dándome un traguito
de cerveza fría,
dándome un traguito
de cerveza fría...

Ese pobre lechón,
que murió de repente
con un tajo en la frente
y otro en el corazón,
lo metieron al horno,
lo sacaron caliente,
le metieron el diente,
le metieron el diente
a ese pobre lechón.
