Passion fruit tips
If you’ve got an excess of passion fruit, you can store them in the fridge for up to three weeks. Alternatively, you can freeze the pulp in ice cube trays – it’s lovely in fruit juice, soft drink or cocktails. Ensure the fruit ripen on the vine so that they have time to sweeten, unless you like them tart! You don’t have to cook with them, you can enjoy passion fruit fresh off the vine as a nutritious snack.
