We have a wonderful vine out there, the best producer of the 5 vines we have. Though the fruit are smaller than the vine over the pigpen we get more of them.
|I think the flowers are so pretty.|
Grandaughter was out here a couple of days ago and she helped pick up a couple of bags worth. They are nice fresh but there is only so many we can eat plain. The son sometimes has a few but never enough. I do freeze them and give some away but still have heaps.
I am going to make up some cordial but we don't drink a lot of cordial here.
I'm a water drinker and Hubby drinks Coke.
I have been experimenting with making a pudding out of them. I am onto my third try and it is good. Hubby thinks it could be a bit sweeter but he's a Coke drinker so what would he know.
He could be right though, I usually add way less sugar than recipes call for and think the stuff still tastes OK.
I have modified my chocolate pudding recipe which was modified from a Yogo recipe from the SimpleSavings site.
This time I used 200ml of Passionfruit pulp, 2Tbs cornfour, 3Tbs sugar, just under 1/2cup skim milk powder, and 300ml.of water
Heat in micowave, stir, heat etc until it starts to thicken..
It gets a bit thicker as it cools. Cool then gobble.
Use more or less pulp depending on the intensity of flavour you like. I like it strong. As in everything I cook/make it is all experimenting, no set recipes.
I serve mine in a cup, that holds 3/4 cup but if you had big Passionfruit you could use the shell of them.
I liked it. DD said it tasted too much like Passionfuit but kept eating it out of the bowl. Grandaughter wanted more then more again.
