The Passionfruit curd post was one of the most popular in recent memory. Several people wrote me very excited about being able to have a resource for fresh Passionfruit. Of course when I went back across the street to see if I could get more there were none to be found. Just on a hunch I went to the freezer section, to see if maybe they might have some, even though I was convinced this was something that you would have to get from a gourmet store or order on-line, but I was wrong. Apparently Passionfruit is so popular in Latin culinary tradition that is basically, from what I can tell, a mainstay, so much so that Goya has very reasonably priced frozen passionfruit pulp (I believe it was $2.99 for a 14 ounce package). So if you are in need the Fine Fare on Clinton at Grand street carries it – but my hunch is any good Latin grocery store would have some or would be able to tell you where to go in your neighborhood to get some.
I find this very exciting, because now this rare, exotic and hard to find (or so I thought) item is readily available and cheap! Passionfruit smoothies and protein shakes here I come!
