How about a nice Hawaiian punch?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

No doubt some of you older Americans remember those commercials.

 

But a friend who is moving to Hawaii in the not too distant future has a birthday party coming up.  I've been asked to provide some appropriate island edibles.  Should be fun.  I won't be digging up the backyard to do a real kahlua pig, but I am looking for some other ideas.

 

Wish I could fly over there, sample a couple dozen poke varieties and such.  Such is not to happen.  Oh well.

 

And I'll plan on two scoops of rice.

Kahlua pig? Yum. When I was in Hawaii, even McDonalds had spam, so spam would be fitting. If you have some good tuna, tuna poke is everywhere down there, in many different forms.

 

By the way, spam may be gross, but somehow when it's served as a breakfast meal at McDonalds with a side of steamed rice and soy sauce, it hits the spot.

Um, Kahlua is a potent potable of Rum and Coffee from Mexico…

Kalua is a Hawaiian method of cooking

Nothing yet.  Turns out it is still a few weeks away, so I'm focusing on cabbage at the moment.  Banana leaves aren't exactly Hawaiian cabbage, are they?

Are you comparing the pipikaula to commercially made jerky in the U.S.?  Ain't no comparison with the commercially made cr*p here.  The beef jerky I make sells out within a couple of days and so...   :smiles:

I'm pretty convinced I'll try my hand at a batch, as well as something like huli huli chicken.  The jury is still out on the spam sushi.

I don't know

Both dearest husband and I were NOT enamored by it.

Maybe we're just too poiled by what we ate back in Hawaii, and mine was at very best a sloppy 4th at best.
