Feijoa Jam

And so there were a huge amount of Feijoas given to us from many friends. There was toss between feijoa jam or muffin. I suggested jam so that it lasts.

For about 2 kgs worth, look at how much jam we could make.

I had to be cautious when I peeled them out as some had worms (one of those, sigh)

The inside of Feijoas

My MIL suggested adding apples so that it encourages 'pectin' so that it sets more too.

I used this blog as reference, but the other things added were suggested by MIL

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1.5 lemon
  • 1/4 cup of ginger
  • 6 cups of white sugar


  1. Bring feijoas, ginger and apples to boil with lemon and water
  2. Simmer when sugar goes in
  3. Stir for 2-3 hours until consistency thickens
