The passion fruit or passion fruit (as it is also known) has an exquisite flavor, is rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, is easily digested and contains antioxidant properties.
It is mostly consumed in juice, however, there are a large number of recipes that can be prepared with this fruit. We leave you the step by step to prepare a jam with an incredible flavor, and the best, super fast and simple.
- 1 and 1/2 cups of fruit pulp
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 spoon of vanilla
- Necessary water. About 1 and 1/2 cups
Chop the passion fruit in half, extract the pulp and pour it into a saucepan. Add the sugar, 1 cup of water, and vanilla and boil over medium heat for about half an hour, stirring constantly. In this preparation I used papelón or panela, which is a product obtained from the juice of sugar cane, before being converted into sugar. That is why the result has a dark color, but the procedure with sugar is exactly the same.
Remove the concentrate from the heat, strain it and reserve it. The rest of the passion fruit remaining in the strainer is placed back in the saucepan, covered with water (about 1/2 cup) and cooked for 15 minutes to extract all of its pulp.
After this time, strain again, discard the seeds and pour the resulting product with the liquid that we obtained previously. Bring to medium heat for half an hour (or until it has the consistency of jam), stirring constantly. It is important not to stop stirring to prevent the jam from sticking or burning.
Store the jam in a previously sterilized glass container, let it cool, keep it in the refrigerator and start enjoying it.
This passion fruit jam is super rich, because it contrasts the sweetness of the sugar with the natural acid of the fruit. It is perfect to spread on cookies or toast and for more risky palates, combined with cheese as in a cheesecake, it tastes of glory! And why not as a sauce for desserts!
