Ah, the kiwifruit. This summery fruit may not look very appetizing from the outside, but the inside tells a different story. These delicious kiwi recipes will help you try new foods this kiwi season.
When ripe, a kiwifruit is tender, juicy, and deliciously sweet. That’s why it’s perfect for so many tasty recipes. From smoothies to kiwi sorbet to kiwi salsa, you can enjoy a kiwifruit in various ways.
What Can I Do with Lots of Kiwis?
First, you must know how to tell if a kiwi is ripe. Hold the fruit in your hand and give it a gentle squeeze. If it shows like a ripe peach, it’s ready for you to enjoy.
Now, if you have many ripe kiwis you need to use quickly, you’re in luck. Since they’re so versatile, you can use them in almost every fruit-based recipe.
The best way to use kiwifruit quickly is to make something long-lasting. Sorbets, preserves, and popsicles are perfect for enjoying the warmer seasons.
