Aloha Members! It’s only the beginning of the month but we are super excited-wonderful things are happening with Oahu Fresh and we are thankful you’re part of it. This week we have a great bag with wonderful citrus from 3 different farms, we are starting our pork shares delivery, and we have partnered with Design My Meals to make it even easier for you to create locally grown meals at home.
The bag this week is fantastic–you’ll be receiving jabong (pomelo) from Nalo Farms, oranges from Kama`aina Land Plant Rentals and Nursery, a tangerine and either a tahitian lime or Meyer lemon from Hoalike Farm, round eggplant from Ho Farms, hydroponic lettuce from 808 Farm Fresh, either arugula or pak choy and tomatoes from Pit Farms, and sweet potatoes from Mililani Ag Park. WOW! What to do with it all? Well, Tina from Kama`aina Land says the oranges are fabulous, especially for juicing. You can also make a citrus inspired lunch or dinner salad by adding slices of your jabong and tangerine to arugula, tomatoes, lettuce, and maybe some chicken. It will be packed with vitamins, protein, and local flavor!!
If you haven’t had jabong (also called pomelo) before, it is similar to grapefruit but sweeter and not as tart. Here’s a little local information on jabong, and another recipe, this one for Thai Pomelo Salad.
