Hawaiian Shaved Ice
When is the last time that you had shaved ice? Did you have to drive to find a location? Were they open? Closed? Did you ask yourself can’t I just buy a machine and make it at home?
I totally get how you feel! I feel the same way. There are a few locations in a city near us where you can buy shaved ice, however, they are either always super busy or closed. There is never an in between.
That’s why when I heard about a Hawaiian Shaved Ice machine, I knew I needed to learn more!
What is Shaved Ice?
It’s ice shavings from blocks of ice and then topped with a sweet type of syrup.
Where Did it Come From?
Shaving ice has been popular for thousands of years. It started out in Japan during the Heian Period (A.D.) when they were serving it with sweet syrups. They referred to it as “shavings” and served it with sweet syrupy drinks. This dessert was first introduced in Hawaii over 100 years ago. It is now known as “Shaved Ice.”
A Little Bit of History
Other countries and cultures have developed their own versions of shaved ice.
In the Philippines, it’s called “Halo-Hallo”. In China, it’s called, “Bao Bing”.
How Did it Come to the US?
In the mid-1800s, when Japanese immigrants arrived in Hawaii, they would shave flakes off of the ice and then use sugar or a sweet juice, such as pineapple. They first called it, “Kakigori”.
