No, but if I'm too tired or lazy or making a smoothie, the skin it is but I'll slice off a little off the top.

When was a kid, kiwis were typically about 30% smaller than what we see now. They also had a very unique, slightly tart taste. Now they are gigantic and taste like a hybrid of a banana and a strawberry. Sad.

Never thought of even trying it.....but I will now. 

Me neither and the idea seemed pretty gross.  But I happened to have a kiwi on the counter so, what the heck ...

Ah, too bad… no thumbs up here. You earned one though. :-)

Years and years ago a girl and I bonded over the fact that we both ate the skin on kiwis.

That wasn't the Miami Dolphins cheerleader. Aside from thinking she was hot, we had nothing in common.

If they can make grapes taste like cotton candy or gumdrops I'm sure they can get it to taste like it did you just have to find it and pay more.

I haven't eaten a kiwi in so long I don't even remember how I'd do it.

Which, in turn, is probably why I haven't eaten a kiwi in so long. It's a vicious cycle.

The trick to peeling off the skin quickly is w/a spoon, there are YT vids that demo it.

We occasionally have a kiwi mixed with other fresh fruit and the skin is always removed.  I never gave eating the skin a thought but I will try it just to see what it tastes like.

That is probably the biggest benefit of this - other than rinsing it, there's nothing to do.  It doesn't have a pit so you just eat the whole danged thing.  (I didn't eat the one end where the stem connected)

Or just eat the skin. ;-)

Right, I don't eat that part either.

Nothing more satisfying than looking down after lunch and seeing nothing but a table.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
