The Love Fruit
Heaven on a plate; a pretty Royal Albert plate of course!
A nest of home-made meringue, filled with freshly made passionfruit and lemon butter, topped with hand-whipped cream set upon a bed of seeded passionfruit. If this doesn't 'swoon' you, then nothing will.
Place finely chopped rind of one lemon into a mixing bowl. Add 110gm caster sugar and 3 fresh egg yolks (the fresher the better and better still if not refrigerated). Beat with whisk for about 3-4mins. Add 70gm passionfruit juice combined with some passionfruit seeds. Also add 50gm freshly squeezed lemon juice. Beat 1min.
Place over pan of simmering water; stir regularly for about 12-15mins till mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Whisk or beat in 110gm unsalted or reduced salt butter. Pour into jars - 2 medium should do it.
Seal immediately; refrigerate; will easily last for up to 2 weeks in fridge.
