It’s getting closer to spring, although it has really felt like winter this past week or so! For the last week of January we have a nice mix of citrus for you (2 lbs!), sweet potatoes, green peppers, tomatoes, green eggplant, and swiss chard. Winter is always tough on certain types of produce in Hawaii…our cooler temperatures and occasional heavy rains aren’t too friendly to greens and tomatoes, and things just grow a lot slower! We hope you enjoy getting your fill of citrus this week–despite not always looking perfect like a “sunkist”, local citrus is usually very flavorful and extremely juicy.
Swiss Chard and Sweet Potato Gratin Either halve this recipe or buy more chard and potatoes as the recipe serves 12 as written. This would be sooo good on a windy and rainy winter night in Honolulu!
Green Pepper Relish Wow your friends or colleagues at the next potluck with this topping for burgers or wraps…and don’t wait for a potluck, create one at the beach this weekend if no one else does!
Fried Green Eggplant With a chilled bottle of white wine, some salad, and some protein you can pretend it’s not winter!
Please send us your creations or post them on our facebook page! Happy local eating!
