Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit Rainbow Cup


  1. Make the jelly according to the instructions on the packet, adding sugar to taste.

  2. Divide jelly into 2 parts and tint each one with a few drops of food colouring. Pour each colour into a small bowl or tray and set aside to cool. Chill well in the fridge and cut into small neat cubes or stamp out with small flower cutters.

  3. Sit a SunGold Kiwifruit on its base (the wider end where the stalk is attached). If necessary, trim base slightly so that kiwifruit does not wobble. Using the tip of a small paring knife, cut the top end of the kiwifruit about 1/3 of the way down (as shown in illustration). Remove this top part of the kiwifruit.

  4. Scoop out the SunGold Kiwifruit flesh with the sharp edge of a teaspoon, leaving a kiwifruit ‘cup’ with about 0.5 cm thickness. Cut kiwifruit into cubes or triangle shape.

  5. Pile SunGold Kiwifruit and colourful jelly back into the ‘cups’ and arrange them on a platter or tray. This can be prepared a couple of hours before serving.
