Stack of Recipes Forums has a number of threads dedicated to feijoa recipes. They can be a bit hard to navigate around, with all the bump entries and such but are worth a good search for some recipe gems.

This jam is a microwaveable version and is popular with posters. Jam is on my ‘to-do list’ so if you give this a go, please let me know how it goes



  • 500g peeled feijoas
  • 500g sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup water


  1. Chop the peeled feijoas. Place in a food processor and pulp well.
  2. Place pulped feijoas in a large glass bowl with the sugar, lemon juice, fresh grated ginger and water.
    Use a very large bowl or it overflows!
  3. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, then stir.
  4. Cook for another 10 minutes, stirring once, then pour into jars and seal.
    Be careful getting the bowl out of the microwave as it will be very hot.
