Pure love-in-spoonfuls!

Passion Fruit Puree: I have read some Latin or Hispanic stores might sell passion fruit puree concentrate (in the freezer section). Plus, I've also noticed that Welch's makes a passion fruit juice and/or concentrate (albeit containing only 15% passion fruit); I've not tried it, because I'm simply happy with my current source.

  1. Among my favorite ways to use my wonderful Mango - Lime Preserves (ClearJel Jam) recipe is in jam butter!

    JAM BUTTER (Mango - Lime)

    1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick) room-soft
    3-4 Tablespoons jam preserves, room-temperature

    If both are room temp, you can stir them together by hand; if it won't easily mix, process in a food processor.

    Apricot, Blueberry, Raspberry and Strawberry jams, also make for wonderful Jam Butters.
