Home cooking tips and
The passionfruit should be wiped over with a damp cloth. It may be
cut in half, the pulp removed and the skin discarded. It may be eaten
raw, sprinkled with sugar or the pulp may be sieved and the juice
used in sorbets, drinks, jellies and creams.
Passionfruit should be placed in a plastic bag and refrigerated in
the crisper. The pulp may be removed and frozen for later use.
Passionfruit is the size of an egg with tough leathery orange to
orange-brown skin. It contains a sweet, translucent white pulp. Its
skin is smooth and shiny when unripe and wrinkled when mature. It
must be heavy and full.
Withered passionfruit should be avoided because it could be dry
inside or at best have very little juice.
