Watermelon radish is the name of that fancy white radish that’s pink on the inside, Amy Chun! Amy loves to make pickles with them — they’re available at Wirat Farms at the Pau Hana Market at the Kukui Grove Center — because they leak the pink color into the brine (doesn’t always need to be salty?).
Melissa Tremblay scored when she found some. She’s might try and ferment them…sounds interesting.
Congratulations, Kelvin Moniz, Kawai Gampon, and all the Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank ‘ohana on being able to set up at the Pau Hana Market through the holidays. It’s part of the Kukui Grove Center’s holiday plans where David Sosner and his management crew kicked off during the Monday market.
More congratulations are in order for Sara Miura and the Deja Vu Surf Hawai‘i ‘ohana (they still have a limited amount of the free marine wildlife identification posters!) on launching the collection site for the Zonta Club of Kaua‘i’s 16 Days of Activism campaign. It runs for the next couple of weeks, and anyone can drop off hair and health care items for women.
Kudos to Angela Hoover (congratulations on being promoted to the Kaua‘i Island Coordinator) has the Girl Scouts creating drawstring bundle bags that the Zontians will pack for contributing to the Child and Family Service, and Catholic Charities for their clients…and all this before the Christmas Fund launching, too!
Just a reminder, the vaccine clinic for keiki ages 5 to 11, is available today at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center (mahalo for the heads-up, Blanca Gil) from 4 to 6 p.m.
