Living on Hawai‘i’s sugar and pineapple plantations meant never wasting food or other valuables. With that in mind, Hawaii’s Plantation Village will hold a special session on Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to demonstrate how leftover vegetables, fruits, fish and meat were preserved to stretch meals.

Each ethnic group had creative methods of preserving food without the benefit of refrigeration. Volunteers will demonstrate how foods were soaked in brine, sun-dried, marinated in vinegar or miso, smoked, or made into jams and jellies.
