Greenwell Garden to host kalua turkey workshop
Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook will host a “Kalua Your Turkey” workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Workshop participants will come in to the garden at 7:30 a.m. to prepare their turkeys and help make the imu ready.
When all the turkeys are ready, they will be put into the garden imu, and the imu will be closed. Participants return to the garden in the afternoon to help open the imu and take out their kalua turkeys. The exact time for opening the imu will be determined on the day of the workshop, but it should be no later than 5 p.m.
Workshop participants should bring a thawed turkey and a foil roasting pan. At the workshop, they will season the turkey with pa‘akai (Hawaiian salt), wrap it with ti leaves and make a wire bundle. If they like, they can use other seasonings too.
They can bring other things to cook like sweet potatoes, breadfruit, taro, etc., so long as it all fits into a single roasting pan. The cost for the “Kalua Your Turkey” workshop is $25 ($20 for Bishop Museum or Greenwell Garden members). You must call or email to register in advance.
Amy Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden is Bishop Museum’s native plant arboretum located in Captain Cook, 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona. For information and registration, please call 323-3318 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
