Ha! I have only one recipe, and that is to grab the fruit off the vine and stick it in my mouth and suck out the seeds and pulp while my wife is asking if I shouldn't wash the fruit first.
I will look around a see what other more civilized people do with passionfruits. I'll bet I could make nice jam, or bake it into a sweet pastry. I'll also bet it combines well with some other fruit flavors.
Now I'll have to try to find more passionfruit so I can experiment. Let me know if you discover anything in your own research.

Hi David,

Yep, I suppose that's right it is essentially xeriscaping. My next weeks blog is about appreciating weeds. Ha! Must be a previously un-noticed facet of my gardening personality.
One of my favorite weeds is the group of dandelions and others that they call preboggin here. These greens are steamed and then baked into vegetable pies or put in ravioli. Pretty good stuff.

Rick, you have just been doing xeriscaping. That's taking the natural plants of the area and creating gardens with them. Most times the plants do not require a lot of attention, watering, or soil amendments. We here in Nebraska have several of those pesky plants that I really should try to use. They are wild African Violet, wild strawberry, and the Mulberry tree to just name a few. I am going to try to make some jam with the Mulberries this year. They are just starting to bear fruit. In my older wisdom years I've come to realize that it's better to learn how to enjoy the wild plants. It's a lot less work than trying to eradicate them. Al though I still don't have a love for bind weed. :0)

Have a great Passion flower day.
