Passion fruit

Passion fruit
Passion fruit is one of the cook’s great friends. Take the wrinkled, apparently desiccated and possibly rotting old fruit, cut it open and marvel at the golden-green treasure within. Scoop it out, and you have a natural, zesty, tangy sauce with a marvellous sweet-sharp flavour quite unlike any other. Drizzle these seeds onto the most boring ice cream in the world, and it will transform to something of dinner-party quality. Try passion fruit seeds on ice cream, brandy snaps & whipped cream, meringues & cream, any fruit salad or fruity mousse, cheesecake or zabaglione. We haven’t tried it yet, but logic suggests that a tiny hint of the magic seeds wouldn’t go amiss on fatty meats such as duck or pork (think of the way we pair them with sour cherries and apples). We’ll get back to you on that one.
