These squares are a nice sour pop to finish dinner. Do you know these fancy restaurants where at the end of the meal they bring you petit fours? These squares would be perfect there, so if you wish to feel fancy or surprise your dinner party guests with something extra – make these! They don’t take too long to make, but they definitely impress!
I love passionfruit in any form – so fresh, sour, and tropical and I often use it as a topping for cakes and panna cotta. It is a strong flavor and a little goes a long way. The same with these squares – only a few are enough to satisfy a craving. You can keep the rest in an airtight container in your fridge for several weeks.
The cooking process is very simple, but it is important to remember that agar-agar needs to be boiled for a few minutes to activate it. Believe me, I have missed the boiling part in the past and it does not work without it! So learn from my mistakes and simmer it for a few minutes!
Passionfruit Jelly Squares
Cooking time: 10 minutes + setting time
1 cup passionfruit puree (if using fresh just put the pulp through a sieve to remove the seeds. If used store-bought ones, make sure it is without much added sugar)
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp agar-agar
¼ cup shredded coconut
Place passionfruit puree, sugar, and agar-agar powder in a pot, bring to boil, and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes stirring now and then.
Line a plate (a square one would be best) with clingfilm and sprinkle half of the coconut to the bottom.
Remove the passionfruit mix from heat and let it slightly cool. Then pour over the coconut flakes and sprinkle the rest of the coconut on top.
Let it set in the fridge for at least an hour, then cut to squares and store in an airtight container.
