This was hidden in another recipe post from a few months back, I've served this a few times at my place and have had multiple requests for it. So instead of having it hidden, here it is out in the open.
Pineapple and Kiwi with a Simple Ginger-Lime Syrup
Quantities are rough estimates based on quantities:
*1 whole fresh pineapple, most markets have them prepped already for you in the produce section, this works prefectly well!
*A few kiwis, peeled and sliced
*a handful of Toasted, shredded coconut (optional)
*2 limes, both zested and both juiced
*1 inch chunk of ginger, smashed
*one cup of sugar
*one cup of water
Combine sugar, water, ginger, and lime juice in a sauce pan and bring to simmer until sugar is dissolved. When the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and throw in the lime zest. Allow to cool. Remove the chunk of ginger.
Arrange the fruit on a large, deep platter or in a large bowl, drizzle the syrup over the top and garnish with the toasted coconut.
DID YOU KNOW, that coconut can be spelled coconut and cocoanut? At least according to the American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition.
