  • 1.5kg feijoa flesh, diced
  • 375g onions, peeled and finely diced
  • 500ml white vinegar
  • 750g white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour, mixed to a paste with 1 ½ tablespoons extra white vinegar, optional


  1. Place all ingredients in a large saucepan (approximately 4 litre capacity). Bring to the boil, stirring, then reduce heat to medium low and cook for 1½ hours or until a chutney-like consistency is reached.  If you think the chutney needs thickening just a little, stir in some or all of the cornflour/vinegar paste.
  2. Pour into warm sterilised bottles and seal immediately.
