Kiwi Christmas treeReviewed by our expert panel
1 Thinly peel kiwifruit skin to leave as much kiwifruit flesh intact. Slice kiwifruit vertically in half.
2 Cut a thick triangle from each kiwifruit half.
3 Carefully insert a skewer through the wide base of 1 kiwifruit triangle then through the wide base of the other kiwifruit triangle. Leave a small amount of the skewer sticking out of the top (to attach star).
4 Cut out an apricot star using a cookie cutter or carefully, use a knife. Push star through the top of kiwifruit skewer.
5 Add dates to the base of pot for ‘soil’. Push kiwifruit skewer through the centre of dates and secure.
6 Brush kiwifruit with a little lemon juice and secure blueberry decorations. Place pot on a small plate.
7 Cut red fruit into present shapes and scatter around pot.
8 Use long-thread desiccated coconut as tinsel and sprinkle other desiccated coconut onto plate as snow. Tie ribbon around pot for decoration.
- Use flatter kiwfruit for easier handling.
- Green kiwifruit work best as they hold their shape when cut.
- These trees can be chilled for a few hours or eaten immediately.
