With the holidays right around the corner, good food is top of mind (right?!). While we don’t experience the typical White Christmas here in Hawaii, there is a distinct and subtle shift as we transition into the rainy season, around early to mid November. This time signals a slowing down and turning inward, a time of harvest and celebration, traditionally marked by the Makahiki games that were held each year around the harvest. Presently, this season is marked by darker seas, ocean swell that brings surf with it, crisper skies, and a chill that lingers through cooler temperatures and earlier settings of the sun.
Foods become heartier, warmer, and more nourishing - even here, those stick-to-the-bone meals have a place in the kitchen. However you honor and celebrate this shift in season, through Christmas celebrations, Hanukah, or otherwise, there’s a place for honey to sweeten your meals and treats. We’ve lined up a few of our personal favorite holiday pairings for you, so you can add a touch of sweetness to your table and your hearth.
