Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .

  • I made a semi promise to try a different fruit or vegetable each month that I've never tried. (You only live once). This month was passion fruit. Yes, they are expensive. In the Sacramento area, CA I spent $8.97 USD for 3 at Safeway. With that said, they are very good, sweet & juicy. I put mind in a blender, added a little water & blended for several seconds (don't puree). Put through a small sieve. Thank you for this post. I stumbled upon it & that gave me the the inspiration to try them. I'm thinking an after dinner drink with vodka.

  • It's better to use the juice, more fresh and tasty.

  • Thank you for the great advice! Would using this juice work in making a passion fruit icing, or would it be better to use a flavor extract? I'm not sure if this would make the icing runny.
