Easter is just around the corner, and it is a time for family, community, and of course, delicious food. We love the Easter egg hunts and the potlucks, the kids running around, Kūpuna, aunty’s, and uncle’s gathered around the table. There is something about this holiday that brings us all together, and it’s not just the food.
As we celebrate this season, we are reminded of the true meaning of Easter: to celebrate our faith in Jesus and His resurrection. It is a time to be grateful for new beginnings and the hope that comes with them. It’s a time to come together as a family and share in the joy of the season, a perfect opportunity to reflect on the blessings that we have received and to share our gratitude with others.
One of the best ways to share in that Easter aloha is through food. At Salty Wahine, we believe that food has the power to bring people together, create memories, and nourish both body and soul. Our seasonings can help you do that. With their herb and tropical fruit infusions, our spices will be perfect for adding a little extra flavor to your Easter favorites just in time for the family feast.
Here are a few of our family favorites.
Appetizers and Sides
One of our favorite Easter activities are the family and community potlucks, where everyone brings a favorite dish to share. It can feel like a lot of pressure, though, to make and bring food that everyone will love. However, our seasonings make it easy. They can pack an extra punch, making whatever dish you bring the star of the show.
Take deviled eggs, for example. They are a classic Easter dish, but with our Passion Fruit Chili Pepper, they offer a unique twist. The creamy yolk center mixed with the fruit-infused spice creates a burst of flavor with every bite.
Another classic that’s easy to dress up with flavor is our roasted veggies recipe. A mixture of potatoes, carrots, asparagus, and parsnips makes for a delicious side.
The Main Course
Maybe you are planning the meal and need an entrée show-stopper. Our seasonings can help with that too. One of our favorite dishes to cook at Easter is lamb chops smothered in our Mango Java Steak Rub. For an extra kick, try our Fiery Dragonfruit Java Steak Rub. *Pro tip: you can use these steak rubs on any cut of meat.
If you are more of a pork-eating family, try our Kiawe Smoke Salt, featured in our Kalua Pig Crock-Pot recipe. With its perfectly balanced blend of natural Hawaiian sea salt and kiawe smoke (Hawaiian mesquite), our seasoning is guaranteed to take your culinary creations to the next level and impress your guests.
Of course, no Easter meal is complete without dessert. Our cane sugar options, which are infused with different fruits like pineapple, coconut, and passion fruit, can add a hint of extra flavor to all your favorite sweets. These sugars work great as a sprinkled topping or even in place of regular sugar!
And, if you are looking for something a little extra special, our Li Hing Margarita Salt is so good you will want to dip your fingers right in—and you can! You could also use its sweet, salty, and tangy blend to dress up any fruit for a healthier Easter dessert.
The Reason for the Season
As you let the spirit of the season fill your hearts, we hope our seasonings can help fill your ʻōpū (belly), adding a little extra flavor to your Easter favorites. As you and your family and friends create memories to last a lifetime, we hope we can help make your Easter gathering a little more special. May this holiday be filled with joy, love, and delicious food.
From our ohana to yours, we hope that your Easter is everything you hoped it would be and more.
