Previously, we had grown Panama Gold, but not in this location, we had it planted so it would scramble up and over the timber dividing fence. Anyway, it is a tremendous bonus for us and especially me, as a struggling gardener, as it has produced so much fruit and has remained disease free. The only pest we have, that attack the ripe fruit, are crows. They poke a hole in the fruit and totally suck out the pulp, cheeky things. Maybe it was one of these crows that deposited the seed, from another garden, originally! You never know.
|Ingredients for Passionfruit butter, clockwise from top right|
pulp of 6 passionfruit, 40 grams butter, 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar
|Put all ingredients except the eggs into a medium saucepan, then beat the eggs in a separate bowl|
|Add beaten eggs to other ingredients in the saucepan and put onto a very low heat|
|Stir to combine, using a fork|
|When you can wipe a line across a spoon dipped in the passionfruit butter and it stays clean, with no dripping, your passionfruit butter is ready|
|I love this gorgeous butter on fresh bread or toast. It is also divine spooned and swirled into thick greek yoghurt.|
What fruit butter do you make and love? How do you use it?
