This morning we went out to do a couple of errands including picking up a few items from a nearby fruit and vegetable stall. Occasionally, there are boxes of cheap produce so it is worth keeping an eye out for a bargain.
Today I stumbled upon an amazing bargain. A box of passionfruit for FREE!! A quick look revealed that almost all of them had soft or rotten patches on them but I thought it might be worth seeing what I could salvage. I asked about whether I could have the whole box and my enquiry was greeted wholeheartedly. Here they are when we arrived home.
It was clear that I would need to process them straight away to prevent any further deterioration.
I simply cut them and salvaged the pulp from those that were OK. A small number were completely unusable.
The final haul was 2.5 litres of passionfruit pulp which is now in the freezer.
The trick is to be able to deal with bargains like this as soon as possible.
