Chutney!!! and last year I made some feijoa paste (like quince paste) from a recipe out of the NZ gardener, I'll hunt it out for you. My chutney recipe is here: http://nzgreenbuttons.blogspot.co.nz/2010/05/chutney-love.html
feijoa and ginger jam * feijoa chutney * dehydrated feijoa * stewed feijoa (for crumbles with apple and rhubarb) * feijoa in smoothies * feijoa in casseroles (either beef or chickpea usually).....and we eat them....then the mandarins are ready!~Rachael
I made this feijoa coconut loaf last weekendhttp://mrssams.wordpress.com/2010/05/17/feijoa-coconut-loaf/and it was amazing, and the recipe makes two loaves so there is one in the freezer for a few months time when there is not so much feijoa saturation going on.
I was only introduced to this amazing fruit last year by a friend who had a tree and had never used the fruit. I made a few different variations of jam. One of them I blogged here : http://ivynest.blogspot.com.au/2011/05/feijoas.htmlI'm hoping that same tree is productive this year :)
For once we actually left them in the street for free, there for all to help themselves too
I love fejoas our tree well the neighbours generous overhang has just finished fruiting and it was a delicious time of banana and fejoa bread (divine) and fejoa icecream (to die for!) I also made an apple, fejoa and berry crumble with cream (my husbands favourite). I was sad to see them finish I have 2 left which we will eat as fruit which is the best scooping out the fruit with a spoon divine.The fejoa icrecream is frozen fejoas about 6 halved with the fruit scooped out frozen then put into a blender straight from the freezer with a tablespoon of plain yogurt and whipped into icecream consistency because fejoas have a bit of a bite flavour wise I add a small amount of frozen banana and a little honey to the blend. Truly delicious!
Sorry, no idea! But just wanted to say 1) love your new cameras shots. they are beaut! and 2) I love that you are giving your kids a childhood where they can pick their own fruit off the ground. That is so special :) x
I'm jealous but I don't have any suggestions except for blizting them in the blender for fruit smoothies
Feijoa Crumble..all the way. NOM.
send them here!!!lol... No feijoas in Brisbane and we LOVE them. We used to make feijoa cake, muffins etc...
For the past few years I've been making this cake (http://recipefinder.msn.co.nz/recipes/taste/826674/feijoa-cake-with-crumble-topping. People have asked me for the recipe. It is amazing. A little time consuming but I think worth it.
I was given a delish choc feijoa cake from DPs Nan but lost it, finally after much searching found a similar one but it needs a chocolate ganache that uses sour cream.I have it on my blog....http://mummas-world.blogspot.co.nz/2012/04/chocolate-feijoa-cake.htmlI also scoop the fruit out and freeze so I can make yummy fruit crumble in winter!
I love feijoa trees, but haven't been so keen on the grittiness of the fruit to eat fresh, so thanks for inspiring all of these people to provide recipes - now maybe I'll actually be able to justify planting a hedge of them!
Scoop em out and freeze em to enjoy feijoa cakes and crumble for a couple of months. I do a mean feijoa crumble, but I'm keen to try something else this year. I'll have a wander through some of the other suggestions :)
I'll send Elliot over. He polishes of about 20 in one sitting. . . several time a day. rachel xoxo
*off not of!
Everywhere I turn lately I see reminders of home and it's making me WAY homesick! I saw them at the market here last week...the first time in almost 6 yrs but at $2 a pop I refused to buy any :(I think there is a recipe for feijoa loaf in my Keepsakes cookbook, I can email you the recipe if you like
it means so much that you've taken the time to comment~ x
