3 more ways with Passionfruit
1. Passionfruit butter
In a bowl over simmering water combine 125g butter, 4 eggs, ½ cup of sugar, ½ cup of strained passionfruit juice, and ¼ cup of lemon juice. Whisk until
mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Store in sterilised jars in the fridge.
2. Passionfruit syllabub
Boil a cup of sweet wine for a few minutes, then add the pulp from 6 passionfruit. The heat from the wine will help the passionfruit separate from the
seeds. Strain, then add half a cup of icing sugar. Whip 300ml of double cream, then fold the passionfruit wine through. Scoop into individual serving
glasses and chill. Top with more passionfruit pulp just before serving.
3. Passionfruit and mango meringues
Whip cream with a pinch of cardamon and icing sugar to taste. Pile on to crisp meringue, then top with mango slices and passionfruit pulp.
