[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine Test Kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] So the trouble with kiwi is that the skin is really hard to remove and typically when you're peeling one, you'll use a pairing knife. But the problem with that is you end up cutting off a ton of the fruit. So this mad genius tip is gonna solve that problem. Take your kiwi and you'll notice that it has two sides to it. It has a stem side and it has a nonstem side. What we're gonna want to do, is take your paring knife and we're gonna cut off, The stem side. You know, you only wanna cut off about an eighth of an inch, at the most, a quarter of an inch, because we wanna save as much fruit as possible. The next part of this trick is you're gonna go ahead and take an every day teaspoon and slide the spoon into the kiwi, just under the skin. If you put your thumb just on the edge of the spoon here, you can feel to make sure that you're not digging into the fruit itself. Like that, you end up with this cool little, almost microphone. la, la, la. Then, very slowly, you're going to turn your spoon all the way around, and the skin is almost naturally Popping off, which is exactly what we want. [MUSIC] Magically, it pops right out. [BLANK_AUDIO]
