Ingredients : ( for Kiwi Syrup makes 500ml )
6 golden kiwi (or green kiwi) – I used 6 gold kiwi’s
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Step 1) Be ready with all the ingredients..
Step 2) Cut the kiwi into 2 pieces (cut in the middle of the long-body-part).
Remove the inner-centre part of the cut fruit ( the white/pale-white part in the centre of the black dotted circle) by swirling the knife around it and scooping out. ( Do for all pieces )
Step 3) Now make cuts along the inner-flesh of the kiwi with a knife and scoop the fruit into a big sauce pan. (Repeat with the rest of the kiwi and add into the sauce pan)
Step 4) To the kiwi-sauce pan, add the sugar and water and bring it to a boil.
Step 5) Once it starts boiling, let it boil for 3 minutes and reduce the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes.
Step 6) After 10 minutes, strain the cooked kiwi into a strainer and mash the cooked kiwi fruit in the strainer like a paste using the back of a flat spoon.
Step 7) Add the mashed kiwi paste and the strained syrup into the same sauce pan and bring to a boil. ( Stir couple of times )
Step 8) Once it starts boiling, reduce to medium and cook for 10 minutes. ( remember to stir every 3 minutes..)
Step 9) Turn off the heat… let the syrup cool to room temperature. Pour into a glass bottle and refrigerate.
Once chilled, you can start experimenting with your homemade kiwi syrup !. Enjoy :)..
