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.
