Passion Fruit Puree

janekathryn Nov 5, 2009 11:19 AM

I am in need of unsweetened passion fruit puree. I've heard the Mexican brand Zoya sells a frozen product that comes in tubes, but I've yet to find it! I checked a few neighborhood Mexican stores and they don't carry that brand or other PF purees.

Any suggestions??

    You might call Mangal's.

      The "Pure Passion Fruit Puree" topic linked below says upscale supermarkets have some.

        Almost every market in the Mission with a freezer section carries Goya (not Zoya!) brand puree in a frozen plastic bag. They look like this. http://www.goya.com/english/products/...

        They also come in a paper can like orange juice concentrate, but in my experience the bags have no corn syrup but the cans do.

          Yes, yes, Goya, not Zoya! Thanks. I was thinking I needed to head to the Mission. Btw, just checked Whole Foods, and couldn't find the product previous mentioned by others.

          you need to be careful many of the ones readily available have sugar added.
          I havent needed any lately but I like Boiron ,and order on line from Chef Rubber.

            I've successfully found it at Mi Tierra Foods on San Pablo in Berkeley (near University). Something like $2 a bag. Back of the store, far left freezer.
