So this is just wayyyyyyyy to awesome not to share; just a quick post:
My boyfriends mother gave me a bunch of kiwis the other day- she just picks a bunch up at a local store when they are on sale, and usually ends up with too many- and made sure she put an apple in the bag. Don’t eat them for about three days, she told me, explaining that the apple would make them sweeter.
Skeptical, I tried one as soon as I got home- ripe, but definitely not sweet, so I decided to leave the remaining kiwis in the bag with the apple for three days. BEST KIWIS I HAVE EVER HAD! I am not even kidding. I have no idea where she learned this trick, and she doesn’t either (it just seems to have been passed down through the family).
Please note: I was also instructed NOT to eat the apple- just toss it- I didn’t test this theory, and I recommend you don’t either…
