Topic From The Tropic:
Aloha Shoyu – Favorite flavors of Hawai’i
What The Fact?! (WTF)
Soy sauce was created 2,200 years ago during the Western Han dynasty of ancient China. The liquid condiment is traditionally made from a fermented soybean paste, roasted grain, brine, and kōji mold (Japanese). It contains a strong savory, umami flavor.
Destination To Paradise:
Lēʻahi – Diamond Head – The proper Hawaiian name of Diamond Head on O’ahu is Lēʻahi. The volcanic tuff cone of Lēʻahi (translates to: brow of the tuna) derived from lae (browridge) plus ʻahi (tuna) because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna’s dorsal fin.
Hawaiian Legends & Mythology:
There are also other theories about how Leahi got its name. The crest of Diamond Head resembles a profile of the head of a yellow-fin tuna, and that may be part of the reason for its name. However, ahi also means “fire” in the native Hawaiian language, and it has been suggested that the name stems from signal fires lit as beacons for incoming sailing canoes at Diamond Head’s summit in Hawaii’s distant past.
