“Passion Fruit Simple Syrup”
Hello All! I think it is amazing the things we can find right in our backyard. For this month’s blog post, I would like to share with you the deliciousness of passion fruit. This citrus can be picked at different stages for various flavors. If the fruit’s outer layer is light and bright the flavor will be sweet yet mild. If the fruit’s outer layer is dark purple and wrinkly, the inside will be both sweet and tart, similar to nature’s sour patch candy. This is my favorite flavor! The Passion Fruit is super high in Vitamin C, also rich with Vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. Minerals Iron, Copper and Magnesium are also present in adequate amounts. This vine grows really well and easy here, one a day may keep the flu away!
If the fruit is too intense or seedy for your child, doctor it up a bit to still reap the benefits. Today I am going to share with you my Simple Syrup recipe. I tested this out on the kids at CMP, I drizzled it over cottage cheese and it was a win. Cottage cheese for the kids, cocktails for parents, double win!!
Here’s how it’s done:
1 Cup organic white sugar
1 Cup filtered water
••• cup Passion Fruit pulp, seeds removed (about 6 fruits)
Combine all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Turn down heat and simmer until reduced to a syrup consistency, about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
