Jackfruit in syrup_small

You can find it at your local Asian supermarkets. 

I love this fruit!  It tastes like gummy bears in syrup to me.

This is what the Jackfruit really looks like.

 Once you’ve combined your Blue Hawaiian ingredients then you want to place them in a blender and add some ice.  Perfect for those hot tropical evenings.

We garnished our drinks with some slices of our key limes, some pineapple and some Jackfruit.

And an orchid, of course.

Gordon and Elvis share the same birthday.

Gordon Huli Huli Grill_small

We had the privilege of living in Hawaii for 13 years where we were introduced to so many delicious island flavors.

Here is just one.

Huli Huli Chicken

  I promise it’s not like anything you have ever tasted here on the mainland. 

But I do promise that you will love it!

Recipe Sauce:

-1/2 Cup Ketchup

-1/2 Cup Soy Sauce

-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (We used Splenda Brown Sugar)

-1 1/2 Cups Pineapple Juice

-1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar (We used Orchids)

-3-4 Garlic Cloves, Chopped

-3 Tablespoons grated ginger

-2 Tablespoons Siracha Sauce (We used Tu’ong Ot Toi Vietnam )

To Make the Glaze:

Combine the ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple juice, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and Siracha sauce in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium and simmer until a thick consistency.  It should be like syrup, about 20 minutes on the stove. 

Just arrange the chicken on the grill and baste the chicken with the sauce on both sides, grilling for about 8 minutes on each side until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  The chicken should be firm but not overcooked. The chicken’s internal temperature will rise to about 165F, the proper temperature for chicken to be cooked.
