Mele Kalikimaka from Oahu Fresh! We hope you are enjoying the holiday season and looking forward to a new year of eating healthy local produce! This week’s bag has great local veggies and fruit to look forward to as well. This week you’ll be receiving arugula, tomatoes, long squash, sweet potatoes, sweet thai basil, and papayas. For inspiration on what to do with it all, look no further! Below you’ll find our suggestions, and please send us your ideas also!
Green Curry Squash Soup This recipe calls for summer squash but long squash would work just as well.
Asian Pear, Celery, and Arugula Salad Light and refreshing, this would be a great beginning or end to dinner, and also a nice brunch dish.
How to Make Dried Papaya I added this link because although I love fresh papaya (with lemon, lime, or lilikoi squeezed over it!) sometimes I crave something else or have a lot of other fresh fruit in the house. Here you can find out how to dry or dehydrate fresh papaya and make your own dried fruit that can then be added to granola or eaten alone.
