Passion Fruit Mousse Recipe

So, this week was a more desserty sort of recipe! We made this amazing passionfruit mousse. Our original plan had been to make a fruit mousse one week, and a chocolate mousse the following week, because they are significantly different processes, but we're in the middle of a move right now, so we've had to change plans! The chocolate mousse video will be soon, but please note that our videos will be a bit different going forward! The major change will be that we are no longer using a gas stove, as our new apartment only has an electric range

However! This is a delicious recipe, the mousse has a very subtle flavour of passion fruit, nicely complimented by the tart and intense flavour in the jelly. We like to have a few of the seeds from the strained pulp in the jelly because they're pretty and they are completely edible, adding a pleasant crispy texture to the otherwise smooth and creamy dish. We tasted the juice that we were using for the jelly after heating it, and adding the cognac, and it tasted just like Jolly Ranchers. So delicious!

1. I have never seen fresh passionfruits in a store

or anywhere for that matter...I've grown the vines but they ALWAYS get eaten by caterpillars.

3. They're strange little fruits!

We can get them at a few places around here, and they're always individually vacuum sealed in little plastic heat-sealed envelopes. They're tri-fold symmetry inside, so there's no real "halfway" point to cut them open along, and the insides are maybe the most alien-like things I've ever seen.

2. HooRAY!

 

I spent some time online a couple of years ago looking for a recipe that didn't start out with, "go to the store and get some passion fruit concentrate" (or something like that). Couldn't find one.

4. My pleasure!

We try our best to work from real ingredients wherever possible. Although we also try to be wary of exotic fruit and vegetable imported out of season, because they have an enormous carbon footprint.

6. Here in the South these are called maypops

And are mostly used to make jam. Later in the year there will be trucks along the sides of some of the roads with people selling maypop jam. Right now they are selling tupelo honey and mayhaw jelly.
