    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.

    Shortcut to Quick Pickles, vacation-style

    I can't resist a quick blog post before we head out the door of our sun-drenched condo in Kona and get on the next plane back to Seattle. Brrrr.

    I guess everyone who reads my blog realizes how much the people in my family enjoy pickles. Good thing I like to make 'em.

    Maui Coffee Jelly

    For the first time since I started my blog, I'm taking a couple weeks off from posting. I'm on vacation with my family and since our accommodations have intermittent internet access, it might be another week or so before I post again.

    I just wanted to share a photo I took yesterday at an impressive gift shop/coffee roaster called Kona Mountain Coffee. Lots of unique high-quality local products on the shelves here, including Maui Coffee Jelly.
