One thing I learned from my Albay Pili Industry Federation meeting in Daraga Albay was how to make Pili Powder from blanched Pili Nuts.

First, go get some fresh Pili Nuts, those with the brown skins still on. Boil water in a pot but do not boil the Pili Nuts too long. Just simply blanche the Pili Nuts long enough and the skins will rub off very easily.

Grabbed a mortar & pestle (or what Filipinos call Almires), and grind the blanced Pili Nuts till powdery.

Simple isn’t it!

The pili powder can be added to any of your pasta meals.


I have looked around and so far, I see no one selling Pili Powder yet.

So go make some, and try selling it on the side!

This could be a really good source of income.
