I don’t think I’ve told you lately just how cool having a house is. Particularly a house that’s been well looked after by people who were clearly interested in sustainable living and growing their own produce.

Apparently we have a passionfruit vine, and are about to be inundated with them.

So I’ve been researching passionfruit recipes and I’m now impatient that none of them are ripe yet.

How does Passionfruit and White Chocolate Mousse sound? The correct answer is delicious!!

Then there’s Baked Passionfruit Custard for wintery nights, or Passionfruit Cheesecake for those warmer days.

For a dash of nostalgia there’s Passionfruit Jelly or the classic Passionfruit and vanilla ice-cream combination. That was always a winner when I was young.

Lemon and Passionfruit Shortbread and Melting Moments sound like just the thing to bake and give to family. Edible presents are the best kind of presents.

And these Orange, Passionfruit, and yoghurt Cupcakes would use up some of the oranges that we’re about to have a glut of.

OK everyone’s invited around for afternoon tea! I’ll make sure to have a cocktail waiting for you.

    I so love yours and “he who fishes” garden. It is so similar to the families you grew up knowing. I am thinking of Nanna from the farm, Nanna and Grandpa, Aunty Pam and your Mumsy as they all like these sorts of gardens and are keen cooks!

    Um, YES PLEASE. Sounds awesome! Passionfruit would totally not grow here. I’ll continue to live vicariously through you!

    I really love the flowers. Of passion fruit. We used to have one that grew fruits that weren’t edible :(
