A few years ago, before I was truly interested in growing my own food, I planted a passionfruit vine with the sole purpose being to cover over a fence.
The thought of passionfruit from my childhood always brings memories of a sponge cake covered in a crunchy passionfruit icing. I was always a little unsure about those little seeds. They seemed to look a little too much like insects that had found their way onto the cake.
This summer had been the first time my fence-covering vine has started to bare fruit, and it's got me excited.
Just for starters, to really savour the taste, I decided to go for the simple dish of passionfruit over homemade yoghurt. Such a simple and satisfying breakfast.
There are so many recipes for passonfruit that I am sure some of these will be made over the next few weeks.
As the weather at the moment does not really get me excited about baking (35 -39 all week), the flesh from the fruit is being scooped out and frozen in ice-cube trays ready to be popped out when needed.
It is great to know that these purple fruit are brimming with so many nutrients.
