Aloha Oahu Fresh Ohana! Happy early 4th of July. We’re excited to bring you this week’s bag and then celebrate with a day off. What are you getting this week that you can use for your July 4th party? Lots of locally grown produce is coming in this week’s bag–Ho Farms okra and butternut squash, Pacific Gateway Farmers shishito peppers, Mari’s Garden’s lettuce, Kahumana Farm carrots, Sumida Farm watercress, and local bananas from Waimanalo. Here are some ideas on what to do with your produce:
Sauteed Shishito Peppers A la Lucky Belly, serve these with drinks and relax!
Garlic Balsamic Grilled Butternut Squash Since you’ll probably have the grill going anywayâ€¦;)
Buffalo Chicken BLAT Wraps Easy, portable, tastyâ€¦just what you need to take to the beach with some cold adult beverages.
Oven Fried Okra Another easy way to use your okra, and great as pupus.
Happy 4th of July-get some fireworks viewing in and we’ll see you next week!
