"I had an abundance of passion fruit this year and after a few hot summer days I decided to make some ice cream using some of the passion fruit. I found this recipe on an Australia dairy site. I strained the passion fruit and did add only a few seeds for effect. This turned out really well, tropical and cooling! A very nice ice cream, that I have made a few times. NOTE: Chilling time = cook time"
