I love kiwis but I HATED trying to peel them. Now that I found this handy little trick to do it, they are super easy! Find out today’s edition of Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer on how to easily peel a kiwi!
Oh kiwi how I love your fat little fuzzy self. You’re sweet with a bit of tartness. You’re funky feeling, shaped but quintessential for an epic fruit salad. But dear lord you’re a pain in the butt to peel. Now if you’re like me when it came to peeling kiwi you’d use a sharp knife, cut of the top and bottom and then attempt to peel it. First you’d try a veggie peeler and nope, doesn’t work. Then you’d use a sharp parry knife only you’d end up cutting off half of the flesh leaving you with a peel kiwi pretty much the size of a large grape.
BUT I have a handy trick for you to peel it easily. All you need are a knife and spoon!
Ready for this? It’s so simple and yes, it really works!
- Cut both the ends of the kiwi. Simple, right?
- Next, slip a spoon down in between the flesh and the skin (I go with a large table spoon).
- Turn the spoon in a circular motion between the flrsh and the skin. It pops right off!
Easy, huh? Yeah trust me, I’ll never try peeling them again after learning this!
