How to easily peel a kiwifruit

Let’s start with this hairy fruit, which is also known as Chinese gooseberry. It contains a load of vitamin C and many other beneficial substances, especially enzymes. And what is the trick? Well here it goes. Wash it well and cut it in half. Cut out the hard part where the flower stalk is. You do not eat it anyway and it would only be in your way.

Now take a glass with a diameter similar to your kiwifruit. Place the half of the fruit you just cut on the edge of the glass. Make sure that the edge of the glass easily slides between the skin and the soft flesh of the fruit. Push it down lightly to separate the skin and the flesh. The peeled kiwifruit will fall in the glass and the skin with a minimum of flesh left on it will remain in your hand and you can throw it away.

An additional benefit is that you have not deprived the fruit of its valuable juice, plus imagine how great such a smooth looking fruit will look on your fruit salad or dessert.
