Ingredient of the week~~Kiwi Berries~~

On a recent trip to Jimbo's, is search of some high Vitiman C fruits I came across Kiwi Berries.

"KiwiBerries are a nutritional powerhouse, they are the most nutrient dense of all the major fruits, and are an extremely healthy food source. Containing almost 20 vital nutrients, KiwiBerries are considered a super fruit! They're not just good for you...they're delicious.” Containing 5 times the Vitamin C of an orange. If you have a cold, forget about a glass of OJ. Go with Kiwi Berries!!

This smooth-skinned fruit that is the "no fuzz", "no peel" cousin of the traditional kiwifruit.

Kiwi berries can be used anywhere you would use a kiwi, but with much less work. I have seen some great recipes using kiwi berries in a salad with shrimp to a simple fruit tart topped with slices of fresh kiwi berries. Personally I like to pop them in my mouth while vegging out in front of the TV.
