Creamy Passionfruit Curd

Full of flavour, Aussie Passionfruit are the perfect addition to any dish, whether in drinks, on ice cream, with salads or straight from the shell.

    They are low in fibre, and one serve of two passionfruits gives you 5g fibre and 11mg vitamin C.

    Passionfruit grower Tina McPherson says unseasonable dry weather during the flowering period followed by wet weather has resulted in a super sweet crop.

    Her advice is to look for plump and smooth fruit that’s heavy for its size, as it will have more pulp inside. Passionfruit freezes well, so you can buy up now and store it for the winter.
