  • 3/4 lb passion fruit pulp or puree 350 g; see Note 1
  • ½ to 1 cup sugar 100–200 g *optional; see Note 2


  • Add passion fruit puree to a small saucepan on a stove set to the lowest heat setting (see Notes for slow cooker option).
  • Leave on low heat, uncovered, for 1–1 1⁄2 hours. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon or spatula, then for the last half hour start stirring more often, every few minutes or so, to make sure nothing sticks or burns. (This depends on your stove. If it runs hotter you should check on it more frequently.)
  • If using sugar (optional), stir it in towards the last half hour of cooking.
