Few years ago when I first saw the mini kiwi, called NERGI®, I was wondering how this little berry would taste. And was really surprised how delicious this fruit is. Now it’s back in season and will be available from end of August until end of November. NERGI® is a berry that has been growing wildly in Asia over thounsands of years. But has no connection with well the kiwis you and me alsways can find in the supermarket. NERGI® is a berry that doesn’t need to be peeled and is a perfect snack on the go. Full of Vitamin C the little berry is a great nutrition addition to your daily fruit dose. I played a bit around with NERGI® and had a try on the classic mule but as a virgin version.
Ingredients for 4 Virgin Mules:
1 box NERGI®
1 small cucumber
Few twigs of mint
1 small piece of ginger
1 L Tonic Water
Wash NERGI® and the veggies and cut all in slices. Add ginger and mint into the desired glasses and smash the with a masher. Fill with tonic water and add some ice cubes NERGI® and a bit of mint for decoration. Fill the glasses up with tonic water. You can either enjoy the drink straight away or let it sit for about 2 hours for a more intensive taste.
And this is how NERGI® is being grown and picked from August to September.
