What are Kiwi Berries, you might be asking? I wondered the same thing yesterday when I was wandering around Growers Direct, our local produce market, and ran across these little jewels. Of course, I had to buy some and eat one immediately. The great thing about Kiwi Berries is that you can just pop the whole thing in your mouth. No fussing like a regular kiwi fruit, although I love eating them too. Kiwi Berries are ripe when the outer skin becomes dull. If you purchase them with a shiny exterior, leave them at room temperature to ripen. You can always hasten the process by putting them into a paper bag.
Kiwi Berries are fabulous in smoothies as well. Just replace whatever regular berries you use or add this in as an addition. They are also great in a fruit salad and would definitely be a conversation starter on the buffet table. I will definitely be experimenting with new recipes for these berries. Look for them in the upcoming days.
