K is for Kiwi Fruit

I’m going to make myself unpopular with my fellow Personal A to Z of Portugal bloggers by doing two posts using the letter K, which isn’t the easiest letter to find a topic for. Nevertheless, the abundance of kiwi fruit in Portugal means I’ve got something to say about them and a couple of scrummy recipes to share so I thought I’d combine them into this post.

Kiwis are a prime example of why it’s best not to judge by appearance. They may be ugly, brown and hairy on the outside, but slice them open and you get a feast for the eyes with their jade green flesh and uneven ring of tiny black seeds. When ripe, they’re deliciously juicy and sweet but if you try eating them before they’re quite ready, they can be a bit tart.
