We get fresh passion fruit ovah heah too. (And yet, no hurricanes! Except the kind you drink!)
What would the pulp-to-fresh conversion be for that cooler thingie? Because I think I need me some of THAT.

One frozen pulp pack = 12-15 fresh passion fruits.
Warning: Extracting the pulp from a fresh passion fruit is a colossal PITA.

Good lord, I don't visit for a couple of days and come back to find you're renovating bathroom AND kitchen and drinking coke. Sheesh. I will watch with interest as we are about to redo our hideous kitchen, and one day will tackle our unbelievably awful bathroom too.
I always had a fantasy of a kitchen with huge terracotta flagstones, white cupboards and wood benchtops, with navy accessories. In our city house we almost did it - but we had wooden floors (dark timber), white cupboards which I would NEVER do again (as someone else said, you spend all day cleaning them) and dark wood benchtops. And my accessories were/are cobalt because you cannot buy a navy blue kettle.
This time I'm not sure, but it will be stainless steel appliances, and probably wooden benches again but I'm stuck on the cupboards. And the floors are brick here. Cabinet maker comes on Tuesday to look suggest and quote. V.exciting!
Oh and I read in a recent post your foodies magazines arrived? Er, from here? If so, that was QUICK.

PS. What are you talking about? Passionfruit pulp is a cinch to extract!
(Every second garden here has a passionfruit vine growing over the shed).
PPS. Cannot believe that you of all people drink coke. Am appalled.

I'm not redoing all of these at once. Just the boys' bathroom, since it has become -- quite literally -- unusable.
Alas, the only foodie magazines to arrive are the "usual" ones.
After four Coke-free days I have stopped having involuntary spasms and scratching my tracks.

Yeah, what up with the pulp difficulty? Don't you just scoop it out with a spoon?

You have to scoop it out with a spoon and then carefully sieve it to get rid of the seeds. For one or two it's not bad. To make a gallon of some beverage? That way lies madness.
