Lilikoi, one of Hawaii's most distinctive fruits, is known for its sweet tart taste, intoxicating fragrance, and exquisite color. Bartenders use lilikoi, Hawaiian for passion fruit, in exotic drinks; bakers add it to wedding and luau cakes; cottage industries use it in jams and jellies; local emporiums rely on it for shave ice, sorbet, sherbet, and ice cream; Aunties want it for their special shortbread cookies; and professional chefs use it to heighten sauces.
Fifty passion fruit recipes are presented: from drinks such as Lilikoi Sangria and Lilikoi Lemon Drop, to salsas, dipping sauces, curry sauces, and heavenly desserts such as Lilikoi Chiffon Squares and Coconut Lilikoi Cheesecake. The basics on making juice, jam, jelly, syrup, and freezing are also included so that anyone with a passion for lilikoi can add this versatile fruit to their everyday meals.
