How To Make Adobo Paté

Homemade Adobo Pate

This would be my ‘go to’ quick snack or an ice breaker in a party. Before Pepe’s started doing Supper Clubs we only did Filipino canapes and this dish made a lot of heads turning for more! It’s simple, delicious and easy to make.  Perfect to give as a gift this Christmas or have it as a starter or appetizer on your dinner table.

If you are thinking of making this it’s useful to prepare your jars or containers before you cook the pate. I gave this as a gift to my guests on my last supper club. I washed the jars and lid then poured boiling water to disinfect them. I then dried them on a rack upside with a hand towel at the bottom to catch the water.
