● 500 g passion fruit
● 500 g sugar
● 50 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
Wash the fruit very well and slice in half.
Using a spoon, carefully remove the juice inside the fruit and put it in a bowl.
(Do not discard the juice, as it can be used to make jam)
Put the pieces we emptied of the juice into a large pot, cover with water and boil for 25-30 minutes until soft.
Once the fruit is soft, turn off the heat, discard the water and allow the fruit to cool.
Using a spoon, carefully separate the soft part from the hard exterior, discarding the hard exterior.
Put the soft part of the fruit in a pot and add the water and sugar.
Boil on medium heat paying close attention as it thickens very quickly.
The fruit has its own jelly which allows it to thicken nicely. Two minutes before turning off the heat, add the lemon juice and stir.
Once it is ready turn off the heat, allow it to rest for 10 minutes and store in glass sterilized jars.
