Cy's Kulolo

Last week Friday, my brother Cy e-mailed me and my sisters saying that he had just bought some kulolo and had paid $7.70 a pound for it. Appalled at the high price he said that he wanted a recipe so that he could try to make it himself. I warned him that I had tried making it once before and it was so hard to make and had turned out sooo HORRIBLE that I trashed the whole thing and never tried to make it again. I found links to 4 online recipes. He chose the recipe from cooking-recipe.org and made this kulolo.

It was so ono, I was shocked! He said he didn't have brown sugar so he used white instead. He also didn't have any ti leaves. And instead of grating the taro (which is a pain) he busted out the old Osterizer and "osterized" it instead.

I absolutely love kulolo. I've tried the ones made on Oahu, but Kauai's is still the best. I never tried making it. If Jalna can do it, I can do it. Thanks for the recipe.

Wow, this looks so ono! I haven't had Kulolo in I don't know how long. These are the kind of things I miss being away from home.

But Erick, I didn't make it; it was my BROTHER. I agree Kauai has the best.

Yeah Betty, it was good. I don't eat it too often myself.

Erick said...

Oh, oh, maybe I shouldn't try to make it.
