Passionfruit Butter Recipe


This one's for Sage...

Passionfruit Butter
Juice of 8 oranges
Juice of 3 lemons
Passionfruit pulp - 340g
6 cups sugar (about 1.5kg)
12 eggs
350g butter



Put it all in a small boiler with a heavy base. Heat while stirring until it simmers and thickens. If it's not thick enough, you can add 1 tablespoon of cornflour that has been dissolved in a little water.

Pour into sterilised jars and seal. Keep in the fridge for up to 6 months. Makes about 6 x 500g jars.

love and light

Hi Sage and Cheryl
Enjoy! xx

Hi Kelly
Well, a little bit wouldn't hurt, would it? You could make a batch and give most of it away, then by the time you shared it around your household, you wouldn't end up with very much at all....xx
