Because it is so acidic, passion fruit curd is much like lemon curd. The amount of sugar needed varies depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Passion fruit puree is very tart, so this recipe calls for a lot of sugar. If you’ve made a curd and it is not sweet enough, you can sweeten it with corn syrup or, if the curd is the base for a mousse, by oversweetening the whipped cream. Passion fruit curd can be used as a layer in a cake, or it can be combined with buttercream or crème mousseline
