Hi Oahu Fresh family! It’s the unofficial start to the holiday season–the beginning of November! This week’s bag has products from 2 farms we’ve not ordered from in a while–Mari’s Garden and Leilehua High School. We’re very happy to be able to order from them and hope you enjoy their lettuce and pak choy, respectively! In addition your bag will contain round eggplant from Ho Farm, hot chili peppers, long beans, yellow tomatoes, and okra from Pacific Gateway Farmers, and mixed organic citrus from Kama`aina Land Plant Rentals and Nursery.
As usual, below we’ll provide a few ideas and recipes for you, and we hope to see your ideas too! And we have one more wonderful thing to reveal…we’re expanding to Kailua!! We have been looking for a “good fit” location where we can begin a drop spot in the Kailua area, and we are now partnering with Cactus restaurant to do that! We’ll begin dropping bags there next week on Thursday, so we hope to see some new Oahu Fresh members on the Windward side. Sign up on our website and choose Cactus from the delivery options drop down. Try out Cactus when you’re next in Kailua too, they use a lot of locally grown produce.
Hot Chili Paste Use your hot chilis to make your own paste, then add it to whatever you like!

Tempura Okra I recently had fried okra on the Big Island at a potluck and I couldn’t stop eating it…it was light and not at all slimy. I am determined to find some great recipes for it…I think this is one!
Panko Fried Okra or this one…;)
