Very nice! Were you able buy poi someplace or did you make it? Can you eat the taro and ti leaves like steamed greens?

"dirty laundry!" I was trying to figure out how that picture was related to poi or ti leaves?

After I posted the pic of my fridge, I was so embarassed by the clutter that I cleaned it out. I was tempted to edit my post with a new pic but decided against it

I think we can be pretty sure ATP has some of the exact same things that we do:
chocolate sauce
hot sauce
soy sauce
Lea & Perrins
eggs
milk
juice
ketchup
mustard
bbq sauce
jams
limes
salad dressings
pickles

I've got a few kinds of ume plums in there- thank goodness they keep really well.
Nice to pull out for a Snack Attack!

MadDogMike: I made the poi myself. It's not difficult at all; just steam a taro root for about half an hour, peel it and mash it. Stir in some water until it reaches a nice creamy consistency. I added salt and a few other spices but it was still pretty bland.

The taro leaves are edible (after they've been cooked - don't try them raw!) and quite good. They bring a warm, salty, sea-food-ish sort of taste to the party.

The ti leaves are definitely not edible. They're more like the foil package for the stuff inside.

Thanks, kinda like making mashed potatoes. Maybe it could be made edible by adding ginger and or garlic? Both are roots and at least semi-tropical

They sometimes ferment the poi somehow, have you tried that too - does it get better or worse?

Mike asks: WHAT A MINUTE ATP! the answer is 60 seconds Mike,and before you can ask "WHAT A HOUR ATP!" your answer would be 60 Minutes or
3600 seconds, hope that helps!

Ekomomai making traditional hawaiian Food, Excellent! (But my own sensibilities compare Taro Leaves to eating Tobacco Leaves)

Amybean, How did you know the exact contents of my fridge? are you freaky psychic! I mean I am just a bit unsettled, A Question: when will I die?
or are you the one who has been taking my yogurts? the mixed fruit ones,not the fruit on the bottom ones! nobody likes those.

My last foray into eating tobacco leaves was when my uncle handed me a pinch of Skoal when I was nine. Talk about a retch-fest, it was like swallowing a cigar-flavored grenade. With mint.

I kind of like Taro leaves. If they're cooked thoroughly enough, they're nice and tender and taste pretty good.

As for fermented poi - didn't try that. Supposedly the "ambient environment" provides the correct flora for fermentation, though in my kitchen that flora may not be as helpful/friendly as the kind you'd find in the tropics: may produce something horribly wrong.
