    Default Passionfruit!

    Hi does anyone have any recipe ideas for passionfruit?



    We have a vine that has gone crazy, I have two shopping bags full of them so far. And whilst I have given some away I still have heaps!

    Apart from using them to decorate cakes/pavs etc are there any other ideas? Thanks!

    3 tsp cinnamon
    3 x mashed bananas
    1 tsp passionfruit syrup

    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup golden syrup
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    2 tsp baking soda


    Method:
    Preheat oven to 200C, prepare pans. Combine flour, bran, b/pdr, cinnamon & bananas. Heat the butter, golden syrup, sugar & milk in a pot, add the baking soda & passionfruit syrup. Add the dry mix to the wet mix until just combined. Spoon into pans & bake for 15 mins or until golden brown.

    Passionfruit Curd


    Ingredients:

    125 gm unsalted butter, softened
    1 cup caster sugar
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 tsp lemon zest
    4 x eggs, lightly beaten
    pulp of 6 passionfruit


    Method:
    1. Place all ingredients in the top of a double boiler and cook over gentle heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture thickens. To test if mixture is thick enough, remove spoon and draw a finger down the back of the spoon. If the curd is cooked, the mixture on the spoon will remain in place. If still runny, then cook further until successfully tested.

    2. To cook in the microwave, place all ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl and stir (do not beat) with a balloon whisk. Cook on HIGH for 2 minutes, then remove and stir with whisk. Continue cooking for no more than 1 minutes at a time until mixture is starting to thicken, always stirring in between. As mixture thickens, cook in 30 second bursts to prevent over- cooking.

    3. When curd is complete, pour into sterilized jars, seal immediately and allow to cool. Store in refrigerator and use within a few weeks

    Passionfruit Delicious

    Ingredients:

    1 cup sugar
    1 tbl butter
    2 x eggs, separated
    pulp of 6 passionfruit
    2 tbl flour
    1 cup milk


    Method:
    1. Pre-heat oven to 180deg.C. Grease an ovenproof dish.

    2. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add egg yolks and passionfruit pulp alternately with the flour. Slowly add milk, stirring all the time.

    3. Beat the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt and fold into passionfruit mixture. Pour into prepared dish and stand in a baking tin. Pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the pudding dish.

    4. Bake for about 30 minutes.


    Passionfruit Ice-Cream

    Ingredients:
    Sugar Syrup
    250 gm sugar (caster)
    2 tbl water
    Icecream
    2 x egg yolks
    10 x passionfruit
    500 ml cream


    Method:
    Make sugar syrup and cool.

    In a stainless steel bowl mix egg yolks and syrup, whisking occasionally over a double boiler until thick. When egg yolk mix is ready and cooled slightly add passionfruit pulp. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold cream into passionfruit mix and freeze.

    Coconut Ice-Cream is made the same way using desiccated coconut brought to the boil in milk and simmered for 5 minutes to infuse all the flavour.

    Follow steps as in Passionfruit Ice-Cream.

    To freaze, I would cut them open, scoop their bits into ice cube trays then freeze them. Once frozen I would put the passion cubes (oo doesn't that sound naughty) into zip lock freezer bags or a container and they should keep for a month or 2.

    Lemon juice done this way is good for 6 months+ but I usually use it all before 6 months is up so not sure how long.

    Oh and those little bits of wine left in the bottle can be frozen like this to add to sauces etc when you need them, saves opening a whole new bottle... then again open the new bottle and enjoy drinking the leftovers
