Sweet kiwi is accented with the slightly licoricey flavor of tarragon in this easy gin cocktail.
'kiwi' on Serious Eats
I've always loved kiwi fruit, if for no other reason than that they taste intensely tropical and they are in season in the dead of winter. Their fuzzy skin, succulent flesh, and parrot-green hue are always a welcome alternative to the usual roster of apples, oranges, and bananas. Because they are so juicy, kiwis also make great jam—especially when paired with complimentary flavors.
This recipe is one that I adapted slightly from the National Center for Home Food Preservation. Strawberries and kiwis are simmered together with lemon juice and a bit of crystallized ginger is added for kick. Try it with sweet breads like brioche or challah, or serve it alongside pancakes.
I don’t know about you guys, but the most exciting part about traveling for me is discovering new things that smack you in the face with a great, big, “Hello, I exist! And I am delicious!”
