    Heavenly Hawaiian Fruits

    We're on vacation on Oahu right now, visiting my oldest son who is stationed at Pearl Harbor.

    Lucky us!

    I've been to the Hawaiian Islands before, and every time I am here I am overcome with the desire to make jelly or jam. I even make sure to rent condos every time, so I'll have a kitchen to cook in.

    The quality of Hawaii's mouthwatering fresh tropical fruits is always impressive and the low prices at the roadside stands astound me.
     I can't resist the many charm of Hawaii's abundant fruits.

    The last time we visited I made a batch of Lilikoi (Passionfruit) Jelly. It was ambrosial, to put it mildly. The time before that, I came up with something I named "Monkey Butter" using free bananas we spotted along the side of a road. 

    What will I make this time? We only have 2 more days here, but I already bought a couple used canning jars at a thrift store, and I have plenty of fruit in the fridge, so I'm halfway to a small batch of jam, right?
