Project No. 3
The last 2 cups of passion fruit pulp have been in my fridge for a week now, the girls have been asking me to make ice-cream out of it but I think sorbet is a better choice, fat free ! I finally have time to make it yesterday afternoon, went through my cookbooks, there are so many passion fruit sorbet recipes, decided on this easy one from Hamlyn Complete Cook.
10 passion fruit
1 Tbsp lime juice
100 ml water
1 egg white
1 tsp sugar
Sorbet syrup :
First prepare the sorbet syrup. Place the sugar & water in a pan, heat to boiling point, stirring continuously to dissolve the sugar, allow to cool.
Scoop the flesh out of the passion fruit. Liquidize with the lime juice & water for about 10 secs. Strain the juice into a freezer container & combine with the sorbet syrup. Place the container in the freezer & freeze for 2-3 hrs or until almost solid.
Whisk the egg white & sugar until stiff. remove the sorbet from the freezer & beat in the egg white. Return the sorbet to the freezer for 1-2 hrs or until set. If the sorbet has been in the freezer for 24 hrs or longer, transfer to the refrigerator 15 mins before serving to soften slightly.
* I've used 2 cups of pulp, that should be more than 10 passion fruit. I've omitted the lime juice as the passion fruit is sourish enough. After straining the juice, I added the remaining pulp & some of the seeds back to the juice, together with the sorbet syrup & I've reduced the sugar to 250g. After freezing it over night, my girls & I had the sorbet in the late afternoon, it was very refreshing !
