Many practices of kiwi

Publish Time: 2023-01-10 Views: 7

Kiwis taste delicious and are good for your health. Kiwis used to be called "Chinese gooseberries" until a successful name change and marketing push galvanized sales of the exotic fruit. Kiwifruit has now grown into a $350 million crop, and is considered New Zealand's top-selling horticultural commodity.Here are a couple ways to eat it.

Steps. 1

Eat it like an apple, skin and all.

The skin of the kiwi is rich in dietary fiber and pectin, which aid in digestion.

The skin of the kiwifruit is packed with vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the immune system, protecting against microbial activity and lymphocyte proliferation.

The skin of the kiwifruit is also beneficial for the health of your skin. The vitamin C and E in kiwis have astringent properties and lighten skin tone while tightening pores.

Steps. 2

Chop it in half and eat the insides with a spoon.

The fruit is easily separated from the skin, making this an effective and fun way to eat kiwi.

Kiwi is beneficial to pregnant women. Not only does kiwi lessen the likelihood of constipation and other imbalances for the nursing mother, it acts as a source of prenatal vitamins for the baby.

One study found that eating two to three kiwifruit daily for 28 days significantly decreased triglyceride levels in the blood, a key action in reducing the risk of blood clots.

Another study found that kiwifruit helped diminish respiratory problems such as wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath.

Steps. 3

Take the peel off with a peeler, slice it up, and put it on whipped cream.

This is a variation on New Zealand's national desert, called pavlova. A pavlova is made with a meringue base and topped with kiwis.

The dessert was created in the 1920s to honor the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova after she visited the region. It is crisp on the outside and light on the inside.

Steps. 4

Juice it or blend it into a smoothie.

If you want to sip your kiwi instead of bite it, consider the liquid option. Create a green juice using apples, kiwi, spinach, lettuce, and pineapple. Alternately, create a healthful smoothie by blending together:

1 kiwi, with skin

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1 banana, peeled

1 cup orange juice

1 cup coconut water

1 tablespoon flax seed (optional)

Steps. 5

Make a jam or chutney out of kiwi.

A touch more exotic and sophisticated, kiwi jam is popular in New Zealand and is quickly gaining traction elsewhere in the world.

To make a jam, you'll need kiwis, mason jars, and depending on how fancy you'd like to get, lemon juice, pineapple juice, and apples. Find a recipe in a cookbook or improvise!

A chutney is a bit different from a jam. Chutneys can be sweet and savory, and usually contain a mixture of spices and fruit or vegetables.
