Passion found & rejected

There was a woman I met in Florida my last trip down there, who loved passion.
It was her favorite. However, I didn't like it. It didn't impress me at all.
Not only is it overrated, but it was actually somewhat gross.

You may feel differently.
But passionfruit was misnamed, if you ask me.

Our passion fruits are yellow... And the juice and sorbets are to die for... We call it "Parchita"...

I'll admit, that I never had a sorbet made from it.
She grew them in her gardens and ate them in the garden,
putting the pulp in her mouth & spitting out the seeds.
I have not had that fruit in years..
Did you like it James ?

I would NEVER dare to eat it like that... Too acid... But, when you add the right amount of sugar and get rid of the seeds... Voilà!... Parchita and mango sorbets are my favorites... Delicious!...
Yes Jim I did like it and my grand use to Jam from that fruit
but that was many years ago.beer
I love mangoes Melody. That is my favorite fruit.

OK James. You and Melody have inspired me to try it with some sugar minus the seeds next time I am down in Florida.

Try it as a juice or sorbet and let us know... wink bouquet
You are going to have to wait until next December for that, as I likely won't be down
to Florida before then.
I'll try the juice first with sugar or honey, and if that is acceptable to me,
then I'll try making sorbet.
a woman spitting is not very lady like ,,,,,,

Yet another reason Venezuela is so good for the appetite.
@oped here it is called passionfruit; in China it is bai xiang gua (100 fragrance fruit), the same xiang as in xiang gang or hong kong, fragrant harbour. I just sliced 100 or so collected from the backyard vine and spooned out the pulp, a litre perhaps. It makes the juices flow. Goes great in icecream or yoghurt or muesli, but for me I just spoon it out of a bowl, chilled, as is. I'm half tempted to add some chilli flakes to spice it up a little more.
