Kiwi Fruit Heated In The Microwave

Q: What happens when you heat up a kiwi fruit in the microwave?
A: It turns sour.

No trap, no joke. Kiwi fruit indeed does turn sour when you heat it up in the microwave. Sounds funny eh, what prompted me to heat up the poor kiwi fruit is another funny story of its own. Well, maybe not so funny for people who believe eating fruits, and on top of that, cold, causes cold, cough, and phlegm. It is no secret that Sanju was suffering from bad cough last month, and certain advocates of good health (read: Dr. MOM) demanded baby is given fruits only if heated up.

The first time I heated up a kiwi, I noticed the sour taste, and I dismissed it as a sour stock from Tesco. The second time round, I ate half the kiwi, noticed the nice (cold and) sweet taste. Had to heat up due to unavoidable circumstances, and the final product, turned pastel green from dark green, and very very sour to the taste!

If this was not a well known trivia, it will be now. And don't let anyone tell you that it is just an urban legend, because I tried and proved it!

While we are at it, if you are looking at creative ways to have your kiwi fruit, or maybe for your little one, you can try making kiwi lassi. It is super-yum to the taste, and super healthy for your system!
