Ian’s Hana-style Crab Cakes (Food)

1 large or several small ripe breadfruit
2 or 3 fresh jalapeno chilies
1/2 to 1 pound fresh crab meat (or steamed fish, flaked)
1 large Kula onion, diced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 or 4 teaspoons red pepper flakes or to taste
2 or 3 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning or to taste
Hawaiian salt
Juice of 2 or 3 limes
Splash of beer
Peanut or sunflower oil
Dipping sauce:
2 or 3 tablespoons ponzu sauce
1 cup plain yogurt
3 or 4 teaspoons wasabi powder or to taste

Steam breadfruit thoroughly.

Roast jalapenos on grill or cook in a pan over medium heat until they begin to “sweat,” then dice.

In a bowl, combine crab, onion, cilantro, cheese, jalapenos, red pepper flakes, Old Bay seasoning, generous amount of Hawaiian salt, lime juice and beer; set aside.

Cool breadfruit enough to handle, but while still warm, cut chunks from skin and add to bowl with crab mixture. Coat hands lightly with oil; then knead mixture thoroughly until a uniform consistency is achieved. Form into cakes, stack them on a plate and cover with a damp towel.
In a cast-iron skillet or good pan, heat one-quarter inch of peanut or sunflower oil. Cook crab cakes until golden brown, and place in oven set at 200 degrees to keep warm until serving.

Mix dipping-sauce ingredients. If making ahead, wasabi will become more potent the longer it sits.

 

Master Cho Certification Course

What a blast it was! Over 50 people attended Master Cho’s Cho Global Natural Farming Certification Course held July 12-16th in Makapala Kohala Hawai’i.

Master Cho’s revolutionary techniques are so effective that large chemical companies have threatened his life. Why? Because with Cho Global Natural Farming anybody can grow food without buying any fertilizers or pesticides.

Master Cho, founder of Korean Natural Farming and CGNF

Cho teaches farming in harmony with Nature. Start with a soil foundation made with micro organisms and other edible high quality ingredients that can be easily manufactured on the farm. Then as the plant grows, know what nutrients to give, again, all made right on the farm. Certain sprays are applied when the plant is fruiting and another when you want vigorous growth.

Fifty certified Cho Global Natural Farming are now able to verify precisely what Cho teaches to achieve amazing results. A group of teachers, researchers, farmers from all over the Island Chain as well as Los Angeles came together to participate in the first Natural Farming Certification in the Western Hemisphere. Natural Farming is the starting point of an anonymous revolution to transform the food supply back into the hands of the people.

Cho’s message is love. Love your plants, love your inputs, love your wife, and choose life. Nature will build one inch of living a soil every two hundred years if left to it’s own merit, and with Cho Global Natural Farming, a diligent human can complete the same process in six months. When cooperating with Nature, a farmer can build soil four hundred times faster leaving lasting fertility and resulting in abundant harvests at minimal costs and reduced labor. Natural Farming is the love Cho is talking about.
