Passion fruit, inside
This is what we find inside passion fruit (Passiflora edulis). Really not very much except a bunch of seeds and some pulp, but it makes for one of the best fruit juices available in the world. The most common way of preparing the juice here is to scoop both pulp and seeds into a blender, then add water and sugar. Turn the machine on for a few seconds and you're ready for a super drink with strong sedative properties. The concentrate can be used for making ice-cream and other deserts. Passion fruit is one of the most popular fruits here in the Amazon, and the rest of Brazil.
