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.
