(NAPSA) - Here's a fruitful way for you and your kids to have fun together: get cooking and creating in the kitchen with kiwifruit.
The best way to enjoy kiwifruit is to cut it in half and scoop out the middle. Kids can dig right in.
When you purchase a kiwi, it should be slightly soft to the touch like a ripe peach or avocado. Ripe kiwifruit may be held at room temperature for about a week. To keep the fruit longer, store it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
Here are quick and easy kiwi recipes that are almost as fun to make as they are to eat:
Peel the kiwifruit and cut in half lengthwise. Then cut each half in half again crosswise. Thread about 4 pieces of fruit on eight small wooden skewers. Drizzle with yogurt or chocolate sauce. Can be garnished with mint.
Ham & Gold Bites
Peel the kiwifruit and cut in quarters lengthwise. Twist the ham and secure with cocktail sticks.
Peel the kiwifruit and slice into a food processor or blender. Add the orange juice and yogurt. Process, until just pureed. Sweeten with maple syrup if desired. Pour into two glasses and serve. Serves 2.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place the taco shells on an oven-proof tray and bake for 3-4 minutes, until crisp. Fill with shredded lettuce, cheese, tomato and kiwifruit. Garnish with parsley or coriander. Makes 2.
