Preserved passionfruit pulp
Smooth-skinned passionfruit should be kept at room temperature until they start to wrinkle - when they are at their sweetest - then stored in the fridge. Keep the fruit as dry as possible. Passionfruit adds a touch of the exotic to other fruits and is a must on pavlovas or cheesecakes and in icing or fillings for sponge cakes or eclairs.
- Passionfruit pulp can be preserved by freezing in ice cube trays - add three tablespoons of sugar to each cup of pulp.
- Alternatively, combine one cup of passionfruit pulp with one cup of sugar and stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
- Pour into a sterilised jar and seal.
