As a member of a local group called Eating in Public, Professor Bundit Kanisthakhon has teamed up with artist and associate dean Gaye Chan, of the College of Arts, Languages & Letters. Together they will share the work they have undertaken for the past five years about edible weeds in Hawaiʻi. “Edible Weeds in Hawaiʻi and How to Prepare Them,” is featured on the July 12 episode of the AARP Neighbor Talks program, which highlights community interests and talents by AARP friends, neighbors and volunteers.
This presentation discusses how to identify some of Hawaiʻi’s most common edible weeds and how to prepare them deliciously for consumption. Amaranth, ivy gourd shoots and purslane commonly found this season will be featured in the July 12, 2022 virtual AARP session.
