Kukui Sap.—On the evening of last Wednesday, one of our friends was walking by the Royal Court at Waikiki Kai, and there he was given the pilali of the kukui tree mixed with sugar and other things; it was just so delicious. According to some people, there are people who eat a lot of ti [probably the baked root of the ti plant], however it is better.
[Has anyone ever tried either of these? Does anyone still do this today?]
