I just scored 35 wonderful passion fruits . Now I need some recipes for them. I have made so far a smoothie and muffins. Does any one have a recipe that they would share. Please.

Is it wise to use the seeds in the fruit? If so how much does it alter the taste?

The recipe probably has you removing the seeds for texture. You can crush them and use them like pepper in salad dressing. Reduce the pulp and you can drizzle it over everything or use it like lemon juice and make passion fruit meringue pie or passion fruit sorbet.

Great ! I have a fair bit of seeds. Was thinking of planting them and see what happen. But now I really like the idea of using it in the old pepper Mill. How many fruits would you need to make one 8 inch pie?

Yup, if you have a good lemon meringue recipe just sub the pulp for the lemon, one to one. Also, two words: lilikoi butter. So. Good.

Goya has passion fruit juice in a can but it is sweetened and bolthouse farms makes pog (passion orange guava) juice now. I spent months looking for straight passion fruit in any form one winter because I really wanted to make chocolates with it but could not find it anywhere. So, I am a little jealous right now.

Give or take- you are substituting lilikoi juice for lemon juice in a typical pie form- i.e. lilikoi meringue

We are able to buy 100% juice without seeds. We do include them halved as one of five fresh fruits we serve eack morning, but they are an accent fruit, not a main fruit, like banana. Ours skins are usually yellow and we can often pick them up at the farmers market for 3 or 4 for a dollar. I have just gone out and picked them as well, but busy or lazy seem to pop up more often these days.

Glad to share- planting if you are in an area that does not get cold. Here, it is a parasitic vine that grows on other trees, so you usually find it wild in a forested area.

Sure love to try and plant it. We are in the top of the   of the dessert that stretches from Arizona  desert to the top of southern BC.. Yes we get snow but not much. We grow stone fruit and grow grapes for Wine. Yes we do get snow that stays for Jan. Not much but enough to say wow it is winter.

So if you come across one- let the skin get a little shriveled without getting too much brown. Cut it open and scoop out and eat the pulp- seeds and all. It gets sweeter when it shrivels a bit. It can be VERY tart.

Thanks, I will watch for them now. This year I learned dragon fruit and guava! Now passion fruit is next.

Had dragon fruit last year for the first time. Had to go to Goo to find out how to use it and same for guava. I have used mango for years. Love it. Got tired of them being beautiful outside and unusable inside. Have been getting the smaller champagne mangoes lately at the cousin of Cost and so far very few have been bad. I also like the smaller size.

Yes as far as I am concerned it is the seeds But In my muffin recipe it has me micro waving the fruit and then removing the seeds ? Just wonder why ?
