Now for some real mind blowing information about the furry brown fruit that is known as KIWI-yes the Zespri Kiwi has 5 times the nutrition than that of an apple (“an apple a day keeps the doctor away”- does this really apply after learning all this nutritional information about a Kiwi?). I think why bother with an apple if you can eat an exotic fruit like the Zespri Kiwi-it is easier on your teeth (softer chew) and it tastes great—who knew eating healthy could be this tasty
I could write pages of info on the nutritional value of Kiwi, but I am not going to and instead I am going to share some web links so you can peruse them at your leisure.
Like I have said in a previous post-I am really blown away by the nutritional content of Kiwi, and seeing as Day 5’s challenge was to share the info about Kiwi being 5 times more nutritious than the apple I decided to create a recipe that was nutritious, tasty, healthy and all Kiwi—so I made a Kiwi jelly-I have to admit that I loved it-and I used agar agar instead of gelatine so it fits in with my blog policy of being totally vegetarian.
