Paiai

$25.00

When you place an order, we place your taro in a pressure cooker and steam for two to three hours, depending on taro variety. We then prep your taro for pounding: first, we pohole, removing the outer skin; then, two stages of ihi, scraping off any remaining outer layer down to the starchy core. Once prepped we begin pounding with a board and stone: we crush the starch molecules into a glutinous, mochi-like starch that complements and takes on the flavor of whatever else is on your plate.

Our paiai is hand pounded on a weekly basis so it can be delivered to you as fresh as possible. Please note, depending on the day of the week that your order is placed, your paiai may be placed in the next week's shipment.
