Notes

This dessert comes from Hawaii, and I found this in the Ohana (family) Style Cookbook. I learned that in olden days in Hawaii any passer-by was hailed and invited to come in and eat when the people of the house ate. "Hele mai ho'omaha ko kino mai, mai kakou e'ai."- Come and rest yourself, come, come and eat.
