Hi Christina --
Please let us know how it turns out.
Uncle Lani's daughter, Charmaine, told me that this recipe was "similar" to
the recipe they used.
I just did a Google search for Uncle Lani's poi mochi and was pleased to
see they're still around: looks like they're at the Made in Hawaii
Festival in August 2009.

As a mother of 3 and an employee of 2 years, I've chosen to attend college
for a degree in Medical Assistant. Financially I wasn't prepared for bi;;s
to take a toll on me, so I've started fund raising to make ends meet. My
fund raiser is poi mochi and it's turned out well on the windward side, but
I live in Honolulu. If you are interested in supporting my cause call
