This passion fruit jam recipe is so easy to make and will leave your taste buds feeling like they are on a tropical island. It is a perfect sweet treat for your favorite breads, cakes, and even as an ice cream topping.

The beauty of making your own jam is the ability to control – and know what the ingredients are. Buying jams from the store can often include unknown ingredients and chemicals that are used for preservation.

When choosing fruits for a jam recipe, it is important to get the healthiest fruit possible. Look for those that are not bruised and if you can, choose organic so you do not have to deal with herbicides or pesticides.

Getting ripe fruit is also important for flavors – but too ripe is not good either, so be sure to choose fruit that is right on the cusp of perfect ripeness so you can get all those amazing flavors.

Pour Into Jar

Once it has reached a boil you can remove from the stove. Then, while still hot pour slowly into a jar and take precautions to limit air gaps in your mixture. Close lid tightly and turn jar over and let cool. Doing this allows the jam to conserve better.

Once it has cooled you can then store it in a cool dry place. While you can eat it immediately after cooling, it is good to wait a few days to let the aromas and flavors blend together. It would be a good idea to add labels so you know how old the jam is.

    • Hey Jazz, thanks for stopping by. You have actually found what you are looking for, because granadilla and passion fruit are basically the same thing. It(passiflora plant and its fruits) has many subspecies and varieties, but the main edible and well known are just a few.

      And they have several names depending on where you live: Passiflora ligularis, commonly known as the sweet granadilla or grenadia, granadilla in Bolivia and Central America, granadilla común in Guatemala, granadilla de China or parcha dulce in Venezuela and granaditta in Jamaica and for the rest of the (English speaking) world it’s known as passion fruit.

      Granadilla is a very close variety of the passion fruit plant and can have slightly different taste(sweeter), color and size. But really they are pretty much the same. You can safely use passion fruit instead of granadilla and vice versa to make a jam or other recipes. They are really very similar and in many countries granadilla is used as a name for passion fruit.

      Hope that helps.

      Cheers.

    • Well, if sterilized, sealed and stored properly at constant, cool temperature it can last quite long, really. Generally, the jam should be consumed in about a year or two. Preserves and jams have pretty long shelf life and can be stored for years and still be suitable for consumption.

      On the other hand, if the jar with your jam or marmalade is not sealed tightly and stored at higher temperatures it can get spoiled rather quickly.

      So, make sure you follow the general canning requirements when making jams at home and you should be good. Seal the lid tightly, sterilize (also by boiling the sealed and filled jar for 10 to 30 minutes in hot boiling water) and store in a cool dark place.

      Cheers.
