Ingredients

  • 1 kiwi

Instructions

Basic Knife Method

  • Place the kiwi on a cutting board on its long side. Using a small knife, slice off both ends of the kiwi.
  • Flip the kiwi so that it’s standing upright and use a knife to cut away the peel in a downward motion, rotating the kiwi as you remove the skin.
  • Slice the kiwi vertically in half and then into wedges, or slice the kiwi into round sections or into smaller dices.

Spoon Method

  • Place the kiwi on a cutting board on its long side. Using a small knife, slice off both ends of the kiwi.
  • Insert a spoon near the edge of the kiwi. Push the spoon against the side of the skin and rotate it around staying as close to the skin as possible.
  • Once the spoon has made a complete circle around the kiwi, you can easily slide out the peeled kiwi.
  • Slice the kiwi vertically in half and then into wedges, or slice the kiwi into round sections or into smaller dices.

Star Cut with Knife Method

  • Place the kiwi on a cutting board on its long side.
  • Insert the point of your knife into the skin of the kiwi halfway through and begin to make diagonal slices.
  • Do this around the entire kiwi, then pull the slices apart to separate.

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 5 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.
