Passion Fruit: I'm obsessed

vvvindaloo | | Mar 24, 2009 03:06 PM

It looks like 2009 will be the year of passion fruit around my place. It started just before my birthday (in January), when I surprised everyone, including myself, by requesting that my cake have a passion fruit filling. I wasn't sure why, I just knew that I had to have it. Since then, I can't get enough of it. I discovered that l'Arte del Gelato has a fantastic passion fruit sorbetto- in fact, it's so good, that I repeatedly forego their rich, creamy gelato for the tangy icy tart stuff.
I've also taken to buying bags of fresh ones, splitting them in half, and scooping the glistening sweet/sour flesh with abandon.
So, my question is, where else can I find anything and everything passion fruit-related, flavored or filled? I'll appreciate any suggestion at all- whether a restaurant dish or grocery item.

Thank you NY-area hounds!
