1 1/3 cups passion fruit pulp & seeds

1 1/3 cups pineapple juice

˝ cup lime juice

1 ˝ cups sugar

1 quart ginger ale

Passion Fruit also called  Granadilla or Maracudja

            This small round tropical fruit is called Passion Fruit because it was thought to provide a symbol for the passion of Jesus Christ. Different parts of the fruit’s bloom represent the nails, wounds, crown of thorns, and apostles during the Crucifixion.

            Mainly, there are two sizes – the giant granadilla, the larger is much like most melons with an inch to an inch-and one-half rim of pulp and the seeds inside. In smaller varieties the seeds are dispersed throughout the pulp, making them more of a problem to remove.

            When ripe, the fruit is a dusty brown color, wrinkled, with a papery skin. It looks like a ball of corrugated cardboard after a rainstorm.

            The juice from Passion Fruit, containing Vitamin A and vitamin C is most often used as a flavoring for drinks and ices. The pulp, high in fiber, is popular for purees. The low sodium content of Passion Fruit is also a plus.
