This week, we are going to focus on how to make your favorite fruit taste better. You’ve probably heard of eating your fruits and vegetables, but have you ever tried making your own fresh ones? Or has anyone ever told you that it is impossible to do so because they contain too much water? That’s not true!
There are several ways to dry out the fruit before processing it. One way is by using sugar as a drying agent. By adding enough sugar, it will pull off some of the liquid in the fruit which can be re-used later.
Another way to dry out the fruits is by roasting them at very high temperatures. The sugars in the roasted fruit can then be mixed into recipes or just saved for eating straight away.
This article will teach you two easy ways to dehydrate berries! Both of these methods use special equipment that most people already owns.
Once you have access to fresh passion fruits, they are quite easy to prepare! Simply wash them under water and cut each one in half using your thumbs as a guide. Now take one of the halves and either mix it into another food or eat it alone!
While most recipes call for just eating the juice, we like to add some bits of fruit so that there is some texture. Additions such as berries or Mango powder make the taste more rich.
Some people also freeze the leftover pulp to use later in baking or making yogurt.
Try different recipes with passion fruit
While there are many ways to use passion fruits, you do not have to stick to just eating them as a snack or adding it to beverages as a flavorizer! You can try making your own snacks or drinks using this little gem of a food item.
Making your own dried passion fruits is easy and takes only minutes to prepare. Simply place a half cup (100 grams) of fresh passion fruits in an airtight container and let them dry out for one week.
These will then be used in recipes to add some tart flavor and nutritional value. They can also be mixed into yogurt or plain milk for an even more nutritious drink.
t may seem like expensive dried sour fruits at first, but they are very affordable when you make lots of them.
I recommend buying your initial batch from a source that sells their power products so you know they are high quality.
Use it to make a juice
While not typically thought of as an ingredient, passion fruit can be used in making juices or drinks. It is usually sold dried out, but if you buy it fresh, make sure to save some for later!
Once opened, passion fruits will quickly turn brown due to oxidation. This does not affect the taste too much, but it may discolor your drink.
To use passion fruit in a liquid recipe, add one half cup (about 25 grams) of dried passion fruit to three cups (750 ml) of liquid. Let sit for about 10 minutes before mixing into the rest of the ingredients.
Mix well and then pour into glasses or containers. The sweet tangy flavor of passion fruit pairs beautifully with most other flavors.
Try making a smoothie
If you are more familiar with eating passion fruits, then trying to make a smoothie is an excellent way to learn how to cook with them. There are many recipes that use fresh or dried berries in combination with milk and pureed passion fruit as liquid ingredients.
Making your own juices and adding additional flavorings is a great way to get creative! And if you like the taste of passion fruit, then no one will be able to tell it isn’t there when you include it in the recipe.
There are some things you need to remember while making these drinks though. First, make sure your blender is completely clean before running the other ingredients through it. Also, make sure to check your drink for any foam that may have formed during blending. This can sometimes take longer than expected so we recommend keeping a close eye on it.
Hopefully you enjoyed this article about how to add passion fruit to foods and beverages.
Use it in a fruit salad
When preparing fresh fruits for a salad, one of your starting points is using enough acidity to balance out the sweetness of the other ingredients. For example, if you have an apple, strawberry, and berry mix, then adding some tart green apples or lime juice would be perfect to make this taste better!
If you don’t use enough acid, then the flavor will not come through properly. Therefore, it is important to know how to prepare passion fruits so that they do not go to waste.
How to cook a passionfruit
There are two ways to prepare passion fruits: poach them in water or bake them in sugar. Both methods result in slightly different textures and tastes, so which one you choose really depends on what you like.
Poaching can sometimes result in over-softened passion fruits, while baking makes them crispy and sweet.
Make a tart
If you love berries, then trying your hand at making a passion fruit dessert is a must! There are many recipes for this delicious soft sweet treat that range in flavor variations and ingredients. Most use plain or vanilla yogurt as the base, which is mixed into the passion fruits along with other ingredients such as sugar and chocolate chips or coconut.
If you would like to add some extra flavor, you can always stir in some of the pulp from the passion fruits. The cream of the fruit gives it an additional depth of taste that most people enjoy. When baking, do not over-cook the pie filling or it will get burnt and lose its flavor.
Once baked, let the pie sit until cool before serving so it does not burn. Yours will probably take about an hour to set properly because the yogurt mixture takes time to bake down.
Make a pie
If you have access to an oven, then making a simple par-bake or pre-bake pie is one of the best ways to enjoy passion fruit. These are much easier to make than baking a full pie!
To make a passion fruit par-bake or pre-bake pie, firstly, soak 2 cups fresh passion fruits in 1 cup sugar for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours. This will create a puree that can be added into the recipe as a liquid ingredient or use the pulp from the seeds to add some texture.
Once everything has been mixed together, pour into a lined pan and bake for about 20 minutes.
Try making a ketchup
While not technically a fruit, passion fruits are an interesting ingredient to experiment with in your cooking. They do not occur in season all year long, but when they are available you will notice people going crazy over them.
Passion fruits are a tropical berry that grows on tall trees. The berries come in different sizes and colors depending on the species of plant and area of the world it is grown in.
They have a unique tart flavor that some say resembles nectar. When dried down, their tangy flavor becomes more pronounced which makes them good additions to most recipes!
These berries can be consumed raw or cooked. If eaten raw they must be punctured as otherwise digestive issues may arise. However, when used in baking or cooking they should be pureed into the recipe or else their texture may get lost.
