Glut of Granadillas...

Besides our own harvest, which was not too large, we received a shopping bag full of granadillas from my sister's mum in law. A delicious blessing!

I shared some with my neighbour and she made some granadilla sorbet and in turn, shared it with us.  It reminded me of the granandilla ice lollies we enjoyed as children....
 but the sorbet tasted so much better!

My daughter tried her hand at granadilla butter, similar to lemon curd, but made with granadillas.

It is very simple to make and delicious over vanilla ice cream. 

Here is the recipe if you would like to try it yourself :
130g butter
2 cups granadilla pulp
2 cups sugar
5 eggs
Put all ingredients, except eggs, into a double boiler and bring to the boil.
Remove from heat and allow to cool down a little.
Beat eggs and then add to cooled mixture while stirring.
Return to heat, stirring all the while until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat before the egg curdles.
