I'd always thought when you'd see passion fruit being used in foood and beverages they were somehow gathering the juice from inside ..around the seeds.. and putting ths into the mix...
Today I was sitting having a lovely Jasmine tea from a chinese botique tea company.. and was shown by my hoast ... this designer her passon tea ...which she gave me some of and is pictured here... the mix had a number of corsely chopped items in it..
in the picture there's the pile of the tea mix... around the edge is... @ about
2 o'clock the tiny currants...
3 o'clock the tiny tea leaves..
4 o'clock corse chopped passion fruit skin
5 o'clock chunks of dried pineapple
So they are using the husk.. the outer covering of the fruit sliced and cubed to steep in with the tea... I wonder how many other items use the passion skin for the passion flavorings
and not the juce at all... and here I was throwing these away.. after getting the juice or seeds..
