Did you eat a kiwi today?

No, not a New Zealander, but the fruit, which studies show is the most nutritionally dense fruit, ounce for ounce of popular fruits. I had a wickedly ripe kiwi this morning, and it was really tasty. Problem is, finding a nice ripe kiwi fruit. Confused I know places where I can find them all the time, but they cost ya.

Problem is, they are high in sugars and carbs. I'll stick to the pedestrian strawberry, thanks! they grow them in my area. I picked up a 1/2 flat (about 6 pints) at a flea merket for $3.75. Fantastic!

I love strawberries too. Nowadays, I have to eat a lot more potassium-rich foods, and since losing a ton of weight, I'm not terribly concerned about sugars or carbs in fruits, especially since I don't soda. Now soda is a killer!

The kiwi-papaya salsa I made for that grilled octopus dish in the gallery was delicious. The papaya balanced out the residual acidity in the kiwi, which I then balanced out with a touch of lime juice, some olive oil, shallot, and my step-mom's scotch bonnet pepper sauce. Mmmm....

Gautam, I assure you, the salsa was good just on it's own, and veggie, of course. If cut bigger, and with a few berries, it WOULD make a very nouveau, chic fruit salad...something I should think about, actually...

Imagine this....a kiwi (it would have to be somewhat underripe), carved into a tiny basket holding a wee nest of more wee berries...

I've never eaten a kiwi in my life. I have had Kiwi/Banana/Strawberry juice...does that count? Confused

My favorite fruits are strawberries and cantaloupe. I don't much care for the others.

I drink a lot of mixed fruit juices. I try to get ones from the health food store that don't have any sugar added, so I suppose that counts, doglover.

We were living in SE Texas around '85 when I saw my first Kiwi fruit in a supermarket. I've loved them ever since.
