How to peel a kiwi

Kiwi's are one of the more difficult fruits to slice and dice. Here's a simple way to peel one in three easy steps.


1) Cut off both ends of the kiwi and make a small slice down the side of the peel. Don’t cut too deep!


2) Grab a spoon and slide it between the fruit and the peel, opening the cut like a zipper.


3) Rotate the spoon around the base of the kiwi to separate the peel from the fruit, The peel should slide off easily in one piece.
