Homemade Passionfruit Curd

Passionfruit is always a fragment of a memory somewhere from my childhood.  Rummaging amongst the vines to find the ripened fruit and tearing them open to feast upon the sweet sweet nectar.  So I was absolutely delighted to turn up at my parents and find 22 passionfruit from their new vine sitting in the wheel barrow outside the kitchen door.  GOLD !!! I had found GOLD!!  Here is the fruit of my bounty.  It is DELICIOUS!!  Hence we have none left.  From my table to yours, enjoy xo
