Madumongso comes from the word Madu Rumongso which tastes like honey. This food is sweet like honey, because it is made from black sticky rice mixed with sugar. While, the sour taste comes from the addition of pineapple in the Madu Mongso mixture. The process of making Madu Mongso is quite complicated and it requires special skills. It takes two days to create a sweet taste with sour one. It  starts with cooking black glutinous rice into rice. Then, the glutinous rice is processed with tape yeast through fermentation for two days. Then, the mixture is added with coconut sugar and it is cooked on a stove for 7 hours.
