The first time I tasted kiwi was at a summer wedding, when I was about ten years of age. After daring my first bite of the bright green slices, no one could keep me away from the food table. I must have eaten the entire platter. Since then, I have always associated kiwifruit with summer. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that we are coming near the end of kiwi season, which runs from November to May.

So before the best fruits slip away and we find ourselves smack dab in melon season, enjoy some kiwis sliced for a snack, or in this lovely and rich dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, and nut-free clafoutis from Foods Matter Magazine. It is a very simple but warming dessert when the evenings are still cold.
