Do any of you guys have recipes that use kiwi?

I'm asking because I'm about to get 3 kiwis delivered in my Freshbox. While I have nothing against the taste of kiwi, I don't really enjoy hairy fruit. (I know, it's a neurosis, we're all allowed at least one, shut up.)

It tastes a lot like strawberry, so I use it like that. I put it in smoothies, slice it on cake, put in fruit salad, eat it just like it is.

Yum, kiwi!

i like to slice a kiwi in half (the short way) then scoop out the insides with a spoon. though if it's hairiness disagrees with you, this might not be the best option.

I have seen this done and it looks like an excellent method. You're right, though - if the mere feel of the kiwi skin gives you the creeps, this is probably not the method for you.

pop that hairy mofo in your mouth and bite down, pretending that you're ozzy osbourne and it's a dove, bat, or baby bunnay

in seriousness, maybe you could try to wet it (so it isn't as hairy feeling) and then just peel & eat?

Yeah, here's what I don't understand...why don't you peel the skin off? It's like not digging on oranges because the peels are too tough.

Look, I can't explain it. I just know that I don't mind eating them, but it grosses me out to have to touch them. But I guess I will learn.

Hee hee. Dude, totally. Everyone's got their weird food things. A good friend of mine almost tears up if tomato seeds get anywhere near her food. Tastes are inexplicable.

Oh, also! Some people are really allergic to kiwi. Maybe that could be part of your aversion.

Maybe because they look and feel sort of like really firm testicles?

Is this an official anthropological theory, or are you just preoccupied with balls?

I am always going to call kiwis this now.

Also, now I can't stop thinking about the episode of Futurama where they are discussing what to call this new food source they just found, and Bender says, "They're tasty, let's call them tasteicles!" and doesn't get why that's gross.

Such are the workings of my brain.

I don't really enjoy hairy fruit.

That seriously made me laugh huge belly laughs.

i'm going to echo what other people have said: on a salad or in a smoothie. mmm! kiwi, strawberry and lime go well together :)
