Does anyone have a recipe for a great feijoa jam? I tried one recipe last weekend and the results were inedible. Or any other feijoa recipes would be most welcome. Thanks! Keri.

Here is a nice cake/dessert with feijoas, I got it from a magazine but can't remember which one. Good to use up excess feijoas. Easy to make, no creaming! We are having it for afternoon tea today!

Feijoa Walnut Cake

2 cups feiloas, peeled and roughly chopped (important to measure correctly - 2 cups when peeled and chopped)
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup sultanas
1 cup sugar
100gr melted butter
1 egg
1 cup flour
2 tsp mixed spice
2 tsp baking soda

Mix feijoas, walnuts, sultanas and sugar together in a large bowl.
Beat egg & butter together and mix into feijoa mixture.
Sift flour, mixed spice and baking soda and add to feijoa mixture. Stir lightly.
Turn into well greased 25cm cake tin or deep ring tin.
Bake 180deg C for 40-45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
Cool in tin before turning out.

Use as a cake or dessert, can also be made into muffins, and freezes well.

Freeze some feijoa pulp for winter cakes.
Hi Jacqui - I will definitely give this one a go. I have already frozen a bit of pulp and the feijoas are easing off now, but still plenty to make a couple of cakes with. Thanks very much. Keri :-)
Feijoa Loaf (makes 2 small loaves):
Boil 2 cups of cubed feijoas, 1 cup sultanas, 2 cups brown sugar and 100g butter in 2 cups boiling water, for about 5 minutes. Leave to cool a bit. Add 4 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda and 2 beaten eggs, and mix well. Pour into 2 greased loaf tins, bake 45-50mins at 180degC.
Hi Keri, Ive always made yummy fejoa jam with only the fresh fruit and the equivalent quantity of sugar, but dont use the flesh right next to the skin as that can be too bitter.

Thanks Nikki - my feijoas are tailing off but I have frozen a whole lot of feijoa pulp so I will be able to try all of these recipes over the winter. Cheers, Keri
Thanks for the tip Sophie - I will be trying all of these recipes. Cheers, Keri
The feijoa chutney (recipe posted by Sonya) is really good - I would recommend giving it a try. Great with crackers and cheese.

HI

I use a carrot cake recipe with oil and replace the carrot and walnuts with equal amounts of apple and fejoa. Trick is to let the fruit  brown first. Can be used as a cake if you ice it or a pudding with hot custard.

Delicious!
