Kiwi Sauce

Mary Ann Esposito

Kiwi trees dot the countryside of Emilia Romagna and the fruit is usually eaten as or in fruit salads.  A modern take on this old fruit from China is to puree it for a wonderful sauce over gelato or ice cream.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce.


4 large kiwi, peeled and chopped

2 tablespoons honey

Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon minced mint


Puree the kiwi in a blender with the honey and lemon juice until it is smooth. Transfer it to a bowl and stir in the mint. The sauce can be stored in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

This recipe is featured on show 1815 – Delicious Kiwi.
