Passion fruit is an interesting berry that many people have never tried before. Many cultures make use of this tangy, slightly sweet fruit in various recipes and snacks. It can be consumed raw or cooked, and it makes for a nice wash to eat them with.
There are several types of passion fruits depending on how they’re grown. In some cases, farmers pick over-ripe berries and then dry them out so that they will taste more sour. This process is expensive, however, which is why most processed passion fruits have sugar added to them.
This article will discuss some ways to prepare your own fresh passion fruit! There are several easy ways to do this, and you will know what kind each recipe needs. If you would like to learn more about dried passion fruits, read our separate article here!
Reminder: The best way to consume any natural product is as a part of a balanced diet. We cannot emphasize this enough. Do not take our word alone as fact, but instead look up information and talk to others about these products.
Peel the passion fruit
The most difficult part of making passion fruit sauce is actually peeling the passion fruits! This can sometimes be tricky, as passion fruits grow in size as they ripen, which makes it hard to pull away the skin.
Luckily, there are some easy ways to do this. You can use a spoon to scoop out the pulp and inner seeds, or you can cut each one in half using your hands or a knife. Once you have removed the flesh, wash it thoroughly to remove any residual taste.
Once everything has been cleaned, add the cream and sugar to sweeten the sauce and whisk together until combined.
Cut the passion fruit
While some recipes call for leaving the whole passion fruits in your finished dish, this is not the best way to use passion fruits. If you try to consume the seeds and flesh of the passion fruit when they are still slightly soft, it can cause stomach pain or vomiting.
Most people agree that if there are no signs of digestion then skipping the digestive process is the better option. Because once they are digested, they will be absorbed into your system where they can become stuck or clog up the works.
This would eventually lead to gastrointestinal (GI) issues such as diarrhea, acid reflux, nausea, or gastric inflammation. In fact, eating too many passion fruits may even pose a risk of GI bleeding due to excessive stomach acids.
Look for defects in the fruit
The second way to tell if passion fruits are not so passionate is by looking at the seeds. If you can see the little seed inside of the passion fruit, then they have been dried too long.
The white part of the passion fruit will become darker as it dries, but the red parts will stay light colored. This does not affect the flavor much, but it will make the mouth feel slightly sour-like.
If there are no seeds that you can find, then the passion fruits may have fermented or spoiled. This would cause the texture to be very watery and possibly salty.
Store passion fruit in the refrigerator
This will preserve their flavor and prevent your mouth from getting dry due to lack of moisture. Once opened, use them within one day as they are very perishable!
Most recipes call for cutting open the passion fruits and then mixing the juice with other liquids or toppings. Make sure to remove all of the seeds, otherwise some of the delicious pulp may get wasted.
Once you have removed the seedy part, rinse off the passionfruit under cold water and set aside. When it is time to drink the liquid, just cut the top off and pour out the liquid.
Drink passion fruit juice
One of the most popular ways to enjoy passion fruits is by drinking their juices. The liquid that comes from them can be consumed directly or mixed into other beverages.
Most people know how to do this with nectarines, but there are two types of passion fruits. Type one has white flesh while type three has red. Both contain a compound called pectin which makes the pulp gel when mixed in water.
You will want to make sure your drink does not contain sugar as it may turn the passion fruit juice pink!
Drinking the pure passion fruit juice is ideal because you can taste the flavor more clearly. You can also add some coconut milk or cream if you like to have an oatmeal-like beverage.
This article will talk about recipes for both types of passion fruits.
Mix passion fruit juice with other juices
When buying passion fruits, make sure they are not dried out or shriveled up. If you can touch them easily, then they have been dehydrated enough and will work to enhance your drink!
Passion fruits contain antioxidants that help keep your body healthy. They also taste delicious in drinks and snacks!
You can mix one cup of pure passion fruit juice into 2 cups of liquid such as water or milk for an incredible boost of flavor and nutrition.
Mix it into your daily drink or add it to some breakfast dishes like berries and yogurt. It may take a little bit of time to see results, but do not give up!
This article will tell you how to cut down on the amount of passion fruit needed to achieve that perfect consistency.
Add passion fruit to salads
While most people add it as a garnish, adding dried passion fruits into your daily diet can do so much more! They are packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron.
Vitamin A helps keep your skin healthy by acting as a natural sunblock. It also aids in digestion and immune system function. Potassium is an important electrolyte that helps regulate blood pH and muscle contraction.
Magnesium is needed for proper functioning of muscles including those involved in breathing, swallowing, talking, and moving bones. Iron works with other nutrients and enzymes to help carry oxygen around your body.
When eating foods rich in passion berries, make sure to wash them first to remove any harmful compounds. However, note that not all varieties of passion fruits are the same. Some contain higher levels of oxalic acid than others. As such, you should be careful how many you consume.
Sources: Nutritionists agree that one tablespoon (5 g) of dried passion fruit powder serves as enough intake per day. One small cup (50 ml) of pureed fresh or frozen passion fruit contains about one ounce (28 grams) of dried pulp which equals one serving.
Make fruit salad
In addition to using it as an ingredient in recipes, you can make delicious fresh fruits with passion fruit. Most people know how to do a simple plain piece of dried apple or pear with passionfruit cream, but there are so many ways to combine fruits!
Add some berries to your breakfast cereal, mix it into yogurt, add pieces of banana to your smoothie —the possibilities are endless!
To make fruity snacks, just keep adding pieces of whatever fruit you have and mixing together in a bowl. You will want to use a very soft passion fruit per slice of bread to taste because it adds flavor to the whole thing.
If you love strawberries, try making strawberry jam! Add one cup of sugar for each two cups of sliced strawberries. Let this sit and cook down until it thickens up.
