I normally cut the fruit in half then use a grapefruit spoon (serrated tip) to scoop the fruit out of the flesh.
I've preserved cut fruit for at least 6 hours before using just lemon juice. Lemon juice inhibits the oxidation of the fruit which prevents browning as well of a loss of crispness. One lemon should be enough juice for a 1.5 quart bowl of cut fruit. Simply squeeze it over the fruit and toss gently to prevent bruising. Since you'll be working with apples, ...
In New Zealand the export Kiwifruit brand is called Zespri. The have fully organic and close to organic orchards. Most of the spraying happens early in the growing cycle, so by the time you buy it it has been rain washed many times. I have family friends whom have export large Kiwifruit orchards and it is a very organic process once the fruit has formed See ...
It is perfectly safe to eat the peel in and of itself. You will need to make sure that you wash it properly, as it may be dirty. But beyond that, it's simply a matter of taste. A lot of people don't like the flavor / texture of the peel and so remove it. From a site devoted to kiwis: Kiwi fruit skin is definitely edible, and there's a lot of ...
I use a potato peeler to peel it. I cut off the top then peel down in strips. with a good peeler you can save most of the flesh this way. I use a 'Y' style peeler.
I made a sauce using the ingredient ratios specified in the question. The sweet and sour in this sauce actually balanced each other and I thought this might invalidate any experiments until I considered that they also dominated the flavour of the sauce. In other words the sauce was a little too tangy (or tart if you prefer). For the purposes of this answer, ...
In addition to lemon or other citrus juice, you can use Vitamin C - ascorbic acid - crystals. I don't, however, have any suggestion for how much to use. For a small bowl (about a cup), I've used just a pinch and it will actually reverse the browning of apples. For the amount of fruit you're dealing with, I'd mix some crystals and water and use it much the ...
I find it easier to peel when it's already sliced EDIT .. and will make for excellent garnish. but usually when i'm using kiwi in a presentation, I use a small pairing knife and ribbon around the kiwi
Yes Kiwifruit contains Actinidin, which is a great meat protein tenderiser But it tastes crap, it is not a good accompaniment for meat, especially chicken. It is way too sweet tasting, sort of like serving chicken with fruit jam (preserve), if you like that, go for it!
Kiwi fruit skin is definitely edible. But I would suggest to soak the fruit in water for a while to wash it properly and so that all the pesticides been may get washed off nicely… I only like to eat the skin of gold kiwi as its hairless and hate the hairy texture of green..:)
I know a way that is amazing. You just cut off the 2 ends like regular and use a regular spoon to wedge between the skin and the meat of the fruit. Work your way around and then you can just "plop" the meat of the fruit out. I'm not going to take credit for somebody else's work so here is the link with the video. How to cut and peel a kiwi fruit.
I chop the two ends so you have a kiwi cylinder and then lay the kiwi on it's side and make a small slice into it and keep the knife parallel to the cutting board as close to the bottom and just let it roll until it goes a full 360 degrees and the skin is off. Then you can cut as desired.
Without supplying a recipe, my best suggestion would be to blend/puree the kiwis with whatever other seasonings you would want to accompany the chicken and then split that amount in half. Use the first half to marinate the chicken (I would go for overnight at most) and then use the other half to cook into a chutney or glaze to get the nice rounded flavors ...
It's a great steak tenderiser, if you mix with some garlic, wasabi/pili-pili/chili and worcestershire also a great marinade. Most important part is to tap it dry from the kiwi (mix) within 45 minutes and dry the steak well before baking. Otherwise it will make your steak have sandy texture.
A friend if mine used 3 Kiwi fruit to marinade some venison and it turned it into mush overnight, I believe the formula is 1 Kiwi per 5 lbs of meat.
Kiwifruit can be used for tenderising all meats but from what I have read you only leave it for one hour before cooking...otherwise you end up with mush...overnight may leave you with a chicken protein shake
Salt will help make the fruit taste sweeter. Salt also makes food taste less bitter and will most likely help reduce the apparent sourness, too.
It is often best to use a less noticeable acid source such as fresh orange or pineapple juice. Using lemon juice or ascorbic acid will be very noticeable Lightly brush the acid source on to the exposed fruit surfaces, do not soak the fruit in it or it will become too wet, and not very useful for Pavalova decoration Let the fruit drip and dry on a rack for ...
I'm having trouble finding one online, but there is a serrated blade that is curved sideways used for cutting pineapple. Because it curves sideways, it can cut more skin off and less meat off a round piece of fruit than a knife with a straight blade. It's very similar to this: http://www.bbqproshop.com/melon-and-fruit-knife.html
