Poached Feijoa


500 g feijoa, peeled and chopped or sliced to desired serving size

caster sugar, to taste


Place the prepared feijoa in a saucepan. Add the sugar. Start with 3 heaped teaspoons, but just taste as you go along and add more if you think it needs it (please be careful when tasting as it gets really hot). Add 2 tablespoons of water and cook on medium heat with the lid on.

Once the fruit has softened, remove the lid and let the liquid reduce – you want to end up with a fairly thick consistency.

Serve over cereal, yoghurt, pancakes, muesli or even with roast meat!
