Passionfruit Recipes

21 05 2008

(I’ve heard that you can tell the passionfruit is ripe when it becomes dimpled on the outside. However, I spoke with one of you today and you have already eaten yours (un-dimpled) and said it was very tasty — soooo??)

How to Eat Passion Fruit:

Cut in half (over bowl to catch the juice), scrape out the pulp with a spoon. Seeds are edible, but if you want to remove them, run the juice & pulp through a sieve.

There are many fancy dessert recipes that call for passion fruit juice, but here are some easy uses:

  • Spoon over vanilla ice cream or yoghurt
  • Add to a smootie with frozen fruit (organic blueberries, raspberries & strawberries are available at the commissary)
  • Make a special salad dressing:
    • 1/2 c. passion fruit juice
    • 1/8 c. oil
    • 1/8 c. apple cider vinegar
    • 1 T. honey
    • salt & pepper to taste

What did you do with yours???
