I have not tried it yet,sinner..but I have read that it has a similar texture to guava,only more gritty.
It's used in some cosmetic products as a natural exfoliant...so I cannot imagine what a feijoa jam would feel like in your mouth!
:lol:

Have you tried it?

Stefanie,

No I have not tasted the jam either. Am not very adventurous in jam.

The feijoa as a fruit is nice. Just that I have managed to harvest a small bag of feijoa and was thinking of what it might taste like turned into a jam :roll:

I am still churning out the apple butter. When I am done, will give you a final count of how many bottles I have in store Smile. I will most probably have to stop when I run out of jars . coffee

Sinner, can you pls take a photo of your feijoa when you have time? I have never heard of that fruit before island island Do you eat it raw? This forum better than Encyclopedia Britannica ... Wink

Havent had a feijoa in ages, my godparents used to have them in their backyard with tamarillos and persimmons Very Happy I once saw them in Canada- selling Cdn $3 each tiny one. I think I must be the only foolish one in town to buy three, no one else did. Not sweet cos they were plucked very green,.
I think you would lose that nice fragrance and delicate flavor once you convert into jam,

Feijoas must be ripe though.

oh dear..... I didn't put my strawberry jam in the fridge. I thought that if it is properly sealed with 'pop' lids, it can last longer :roll:

All my apple butter is stored in a dark cool cupboard - hope that's alright :roll:

Sinner, if you properly sealed and sterilised your jars, I think can last for 1year (or more ) in the pantry or cellar. That's what the Americans do.

Yup...but cwl,you need to understand that this is all natural stuff.

I added much less sugar than needed...that's because if you add more sugar,you need to add all sorts of other funny preservatives like powdered pectin or some sort of acid to set the jam.
And we don't need that in our bodies!
So this lasts for shorter as it is more fruit than anything else.
Very Happy

Stefanie, this maybe a stupid question.... but if after cooking the strawberry jam, then refrigerating, I later find the consistency not thick enough, can I re-cook it to thicken? No need to tell you what happen-hor.... Embarassed Embarassed
