Sunkist Sectionizer: Insert kiwifruit into sectionizer with blossom end down
and stem end up. For best results, use cutter that cuts fruit into quarters.
This type of cut allows you to make 1/4 to 1/2 cup servings, depending on
fruit size. The sectionizer also makes kiwifruit easy to eat like an orange.
Most kids eat kiwifruit skin and all. The kiwifruit skin doubles the dietary
fiber content to 7.5 grams.
HAWAIIAN PAPAYAS ARE GREAT AROUND THE CLOCK
To use figs, wash them and take out the hard portion of the stem at the
end. Calimyrna figs have thick skins and are usually peeled before eaten.
Mission figs have very thin skins and do not need to be peeled. They are
fabulous raw, maybe wrapped with a thin slice of prosciutto, but fresh figs
may also be baked by piercing the skin a few times, sprinkling them with
fruit juice to keep them moist, and putting them in a 300 degree oven for
about 20 minutes.
Start with breakfast, where you can serve Hawaiian papayas plain with lime,
as an appetizer, a complete, light breakfast on a warm summer morning, or a
pick-me-up for family members on the run. At lunch, Hawaiian papayas are
perfect bases for salads, or lovely garnishes for sandwiches. For dinner, you
can try papaya salsa to brighten your favorite grilled or barbecued fish dish,
or a wonderfully exotic Poulet Hawaiian with papayas and avocados. And for
dessert, papayas are just right baked in the oven, served plain or with ice
cream or as an ingredient for more adventurous dining experiences.
Asian pears are known for keeping well. Store pears a week at room
temperature or up to three months in the refrigerator.
* Enjoy eating fresh out of hand.
* Use in salads, slaws, soups, and sandwiches.
* Use Asian pears as you would with other pears and apples in cobblers and
* To prevent discoloration when cut, dip in a mixture of water and lemon juice.
