Monkey Pod Jams - Take A Class
Monkeypod Jam, owned by Aletha Thomas, was launched in 2010 through the idea of supporting kauai agriculture. In fact, Monkeypod Jam uses fruit only from Kauai; the company, to this date, works with over 25 local farmers. All jams, jellies, and marmalades are made by hand, so you are receiving some of the freshest, most authentic, kauai-made products on the market.
Here’s where you can find them:
3687 Kaumualii Hwy, Lawai, HI 96765
Not only do they operate out of their physical shop in Lawai, but you can discover their products in various places on Kauai at both farmer’s markets and retail locations, including retail locations on Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island. Take a look a look at their complete list here.
When they aren’t busy making the best jam on Kauai, they’re working to get you learning beside them in the kitchen. They recruit culinary expertise beyond what’s displayed on the shelf, so you can attend specialty workshops such as mastering meringue, creating soft cheese, and cooking up some vegan recipes. The workshop schedule changes throughout the year, so keep an eye out for some interesting flavors and your opportunity to be a part of this fun, hands-on, experience.
Take the time to check this company out, they have a lot to offer and are a unique business to the island of Kauai.
