I love this time of year, we have just got through one early Nectarine tree full of fruit, now its a toss up between the later Nectarine tree, or one of the plums they are dark blue just hanging on.Then we get the peaches on the go, then the grapes will be ready to eat. Then we should have the Almonds ,Figs,Apples,pears and the late plum.After all that lot we have the citrus trees to do there bit for us. Mother nature is just wonderful. I do live in a harsh environment but I also get a load of manure for free along with the hay I grow every thing seems to thrive. "not quite" I have just lost all the veggie patch to the last lot of heat, now I have to put up a big shade house so I can at least grow veggies without the heat getting to everything such is live but we have had a lot of heat this last few weeks. We are lucky that we have the room for all this. I did use the tennis court as we do not play, and it was ready fenced to keep out the parrots. I do make all the preserves and marmalades jams so we get the flavours of summer long after its gone how lucky we are Trevor
I'm getting hungry reading your post! Sounds delicious I hope you can rescue some of the veggies, though.
I was wondering, do you know a way of preserving passion fruit pulp without using heaps of sugar like in a jam? My dad loves passion fruit and I'd like to send some over to Germany (I froze some pulp of the last harvest).
HI Pianochook The way I do it is the easiest way that is to freeze the pulp in a small container or you can also freeze the whole thing just take out a few or a spoonful as you need it keeps for ages hope this helps Trevor

I make passionfruit butter, just like lemon butter, just make sure you keep it in fridge, or freeze in iceblock containers then once frozen keep in airtight container in freezer. Yuuummmmmmmmmmmmm... just love em!!!
