One of my pregnancy cravings that has continued after birth is anything sweet and sour, like passionfruit.
Before moving to Asia, I’d only had the fruit in jams or candied, never fresh.
It’s also yummy with honey and ice in a little smoothie. I first got into the fruit back in May on a visit to Thailand where the resort we were staying at served passionfruit ice cream and I took some passionfruit jam home for a souvenir.
I am thinking it would be fun trying to make the jam myself. The fruit is high in fiber and Vitamin C. The name of the flower is so called from the Passion of Christ. The three stigmas reflect the three nails in Jesus’s hands and feet and the threads of the flower resemble the crown of thorns.
