Passion Fruit Curd

Remove the pulp from the passion fruits.
If you have a Thermomix, go to bullet point 6.
In your sauce pan, put the pulp, the sugar and butter. Cook 3 minutes at medium heat (3 on a scale of 1 to 6) and whip gently.
Add the 2 eggs and cook at higher heat (4 on a scale of 1 to 6) and whip more vigorously for 2 minutes. Your passion fruit curd should get thicker.
Remove form the heat once your whisk makes furrows. Go to bullet point 8.
In the bowl of your Thermomix, put the pulp, the sugar and butter. Set 2 minutes at 60°C speed 4.

Pour the curd through a strainer to remove the solid parts.
