Our delicious curuba jam is a smooth textured preserve that is great for spreading on just about anything. Whether it's an alternate choice for a PB&J, as an ice cream topping or just out of the jar in spoons, we made sure to add just enough sugar to have the jam keep while letting the flavor shine like a rockstar.
One of the more unique fruit I have come across in South America, the Curuba (aka Banana Passionfruit) probably gets its nickname since its exterior resembles that of a yellow banana while the flesh is similar and tart like that of a passion fruit. Although some feel that there is a hint of banana in the flavor profile, I would best describe the jam as earthy, tart and slight veggie flavor that is unlike anything else I have tried before.
Curuba pairs well with other tropical fruit flavors and would be great for fatty, creamy foods like cheesecake, cream sauces, duck breast, parfaits, and yogurt.
Our recipe uses only curuba puree, pure cane sugar, a little citrus pectin for help with gelling and a generous splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice for a little zing to the flavor in this magical combination.
Our Reserve Collection is a limited production fruit preserve series made up of customer requests that usually involve premium fruit that sells at a premium and takes a little more effort to procure and process compared to our standard line of preserves. We are certain that you'll find these high quality preserves worthy of their own label design and price premium. Enjoy!!
