Yield: 2-1/2 Cups

fuji apple 03 450



       If you are a fan of Kiwi, this recipe may just wake you up! Freshly cut Kiwi is delectable, and blending it with an apple of your choice is a delight. Honey was added here, as a sweetner. This time around I found fresh Kiwi at the store, so I added peeled, whole Kiwi to the pot. Oh, yes ... give this a try ... !
