Panutsa Maker

Peanuts (whether whole or chopped) that are bonded by caramelized sugar is a local candy known by different names such as bandi in Western Visayas (my mother would always buy me this), piñato in Eastern Visayas (sustained me in long bus rides between Negros and Cebu provinces during college years, my favorite variant), peanut brittle in Baguio (wish there’s a local name) and panutsa in Batangas.


Whole peanuts and brown sugar cooked in wok over woodfire is panutsa in the making


Stirring for a well distributed peanuts when bonding with caramelized brown sugar


Bamboo ring molds. Shown here is the smallest ring and retailed by this factory at Php5 each


Panutsa like bandi is ring-shaped and retailed in different sizes


Doing some quality control while counting (also snacking on dislodged peanuts in the table)
