    i have access to dozens of excellent fruit purees which i would love to turn into those beautiful oozey fillings for truffles. trouble is, i can only find ganache recipes. perhaps i don't know where to look. at any rate, does anyone have a generic recipe for fillings like these?

    i have heard of a magical truffle mathematic formula. i dont know it, but its out there. it tells you how much puree to use and with which kind of chocolate. but that doesnt help us here. so i will give you the recipe i used for passion fruit truffles.

    these are for a "runny" pourable ganache to fill shells. if you want to hand roll them, add in 8oz. more chocolate

    2 oz. cream
    1T corn syrup
    8oz unsweetened passion fruit concentrate*******
    1/2c sugar
    1#6oz white chocolate
    2T butter.

    -make a ganache.
    *****this is just what i had on hand. i suppose you could use any puree, just add enough sugar to make it a little sweet.

    feel free to email me if you or anybody has questions. this week we have to make 2,000 truffles for saturday. so we have been R&D'ing like crazy. [email protected]
