I surprised my wife with some sliced kiwi on ice, and she really liked it....I did another version later with Chinese pear, which sliced into a cored slice like a pineapple slice, which simulates ice without melting.
I custom cut the pieces and laid the kiwi into the cored section, which was made just large enough to fit the kiwi. I had to cut the core in an elliptical shape and kept just enough clearance to keep from mashing up the edges of the kiwi.
The Chinese pear was soaked earlier in lemon juice, which provides a nice counterpoint to the kiwi.
The crystal stemware was a wedding present....35 years ago....by the grace of God I have not broken it....:)
I didn't do this in front of my wife; it would have taken too long......:)
If you view the Flickr original size version full screen, the texture of the crystal really comes out, along with the unique texture of the kiwi and Chinese pear...
