  I made Dragonfruit Jam a couple of days ago. When I first made it I thought it tasted quite nice, but more sugary tasting than dragonfruit-y. The longer it sat in the refrigerator the bolder the flavours of the dragonfruit and tangelo became. After a few days I tried it spread over my Better Than your Friends Pancakes and it was amazing! The flavours really developed and came through! Woohoo!

 

In honor of Pi Day and with the exotic taste of Dragonfruit Jam still on my mind I knew how my family was going to celebrate this mathematical holiday… 

Let me tell you… I would make the Dragonfruit Jam again just so I can make the pie again! The flavours were so mellow. No part of the dessert was overwhelmingly sweet and the Mint Whipping Cream added a really cool element to the pie.

Dragonfruit Pie X 3.14159265359 = DELICIOUSNESS!

I wish everyday was Pi Day!

Put the pie in the freezer for 30 minutes before making the Mint Whipping Cream. This will allow the pie to freeze up a bit and make it easier to serve.
