Passion Fruit Curd

Lychees, mangoes and passion fruits - fruits with exceptional fragrances. My favourites for making home-made gelato and cake toppings.

Today I made a jar full of passion fruit curd - butter, sugar, passion fruit puree from 8 passion fruits and lots of stirring with a wooden spoon over a slow fire till the mixture thickens into a wonderful custard like texture. Just absolutely heavenly when it is spooned over a fruit crumble or put between the layers of a Victorian sponge cake.
