Passionfruit: 3 ways

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.
