As this delicious fruit called Passion fruit started coming into season in Trinidad and Tobago a few months ago, I said to myself I have to get my hands on some! This proved to be very futile but as luck would have it, I got my hands on some after randomly speaking to my boss at work where I learned he had a tree. I was so happy, but now I had to wait on the tree to bear the fruit! Thankfully he remembered me and gave me a few! When I see this fruit, it reminds me about when I was a little girl, and my elder brother Stevie would pick this fruit from the humongous vine we had growing on our fence, and he would make this juice for the entire family! I would drink and enjoy it! This is the first time I have ever made this juice by myself, without my brother or my mom there to help. It is from my bare memory of both him and our mom making it that I made it! Thankfully, the result was Gourmet Girl Next Door worthy! So I hope you get your hands on some Passion Fruits and make this delicious recipe! Cheers!
Passion fruit juice
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Yields 5 cups
5-7 medium sized passion fruits
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 cups water
Cut the fruits in half and scoop out the seeds into a deep jug. Using a swizzle stick or a whisk, beat the seeds as if beating eggs, so that the pulp from the seeds release their juice. Add in sugar and continue to beat a bit. Add water and make sure to mix until all the sugar dissolves. After everything is incorporated, strain the juice to get seeds out. Pour into a glass with ice cubes and enjoy!
