Hello all and Happy Friday! We are so excited for two new items in this week’s menus: kiwi berries and sugar pumpkins!
What is a kiwi berry? A kiwi berry looks like a grape on the outside, a kiwi on the inside and tastes sweet and delicious! Kiwi berries are a small variety of kiwi fruit that have a smooth, edible skin. The fuzz-free exterior makes it easy to pop this berry-like fruit into your mouth as a quick and delicious snack. They are also great in fruit salads!
Kiwi berries should be stored and displayed in dry refrigeration. The berries should not be damp because moisture speeds up the rate of decay. For best flavor, they should be consumed within one week. Kiwi berries are ripe when the berry feels soft to the touch.
Are you wondering how many ways you could use a sugar pumpkin? Think no more. You can use a sugar pumpkin in just about any type of dish. A sugar pumpkin is a little different than a regular pumpkin in that they are smaller and usually better to cook with, adding more flavor and a better texture. Sugar pumpkins are perfect in soups, pies, pastas, salads, side dishes, you name it! Check out our delicious pumpkin pie recipe on the GGO recipes page!
