FeijosIf you are anything like me at this time of year you have more feijoas than you know what to do with so here are some helpful things you can do to get you through…..yum yum.

In the kitchen

Feijoas are rich in vitamin C and delicious either raw or cooked …

  • Process feijoa flesh in a blender, by itself or with other fruit for a nutritious smoothy. No added sugar needed.
  • Make feijoa crumble. You can substitute feijoas for apples in any dessert, cake or muffin recipe.
  • Dice fresh feijoas and add a little lemon juice to make a simple salsa to serve with meat.
  • Make feijoa chutney.
  • Stew feijoas and keep them in the fridge to eat with breakfast cereal, or as a desert with custard or ice cream.
  • Gently poach whole peeled feijoas in red wine syrup and serve with vanilla ice cream, or blue cheese.
