Hawaii Style Lemonade for the Summer

It’s Summer in Hawaii!

Time for a refreshing tropical treat. 

Lemonade Hawaii Style!

Fresh, refreshing, and full of the flavors of Hawaii!

 

Lemonade reminds us all of summer.  Summer in Hawaii is amazing. The colors are bright and intense. The tradewinds refreshing and appreciated.  Summer here inspired us to create a special Hawaiian version of lemonade for you to enjoy. Made from fresh squeezed lemon juice, pink guava (a beautiful summer fruit), and lots of strawberries, blended together to create a sweet, tangy, refreshing, and very Hawaiian version of a classic. Available at our Popiu store but only for a limited time.

How to Make Chocolates at Home

Part One of our Series: Homemade Chocolate is the Best Chocolate

We love chocolate. I mean really love chocolate. In our store, we make chocolates on a regular basis and we try to find unique flavor combinations and ingredients to combine into something wonderful. Not all of our attempts of course succeed, but with each attempt we learn something that allows us to make our next experiment succeed. Failure in the kitchen can be as informative and educational as each success.

What we plan to do over the next few months is provide a basic primer and introduction into chocolate making that we hope will allow you to experiment and enjoy the process of working with the “Food of the Gods”.
Our first post is all about choosing what chocolate to use. The first and most important part of making any food product is choosing the right ingredients. This is especially true when working with chocolate as not all chocolates have the same quality, flavor profile, and can be used for all applications of chocolate making. Here are some tips or suggestions for how to choose chocolate to use at home.

When anticipating your visit to Kauai, Hawaii what images some to mind? Surely beaches, green jagged peaks perhaps, tropical flowers, the aroma floating through the air, and to many like us, wonderful fruits, coffee, chocolate, fish, and other Hawaiian grown food products. Hawaii is not only a paradise for those seeking relaxation and sun, but for those who believe the food and the way it is grown and made helps you to understand the culture of the place you are visiting.
