Do you know this wondrous fruit called feijoa? Native to South America, it was imported in New Zeland in 1908 and met with immediate success !

It’s an autumn fruit, growing only during the months of February to April. During these short months, new-zelanders are in a frenzy to eat as much feijoas as they can, as the fruit can’t be kept more than two weeks… The feijoa has a grainy texture with an interesting heavily scented, sweet, exotic flavour that deserves all your attention! It is mostly consumed raw, as it is, or in fruit salads, but we also had the occasion to try this yummy crumble receipe :

 Ingredients :

FeijoasFor 6 people

  • 10 feijoas peeled and sliced
  • 3 apples peeled and sliced
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 table spoon of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of soft butter
  • 1/2 cup of wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 cup of soft brown sugar
  • 2 table spoon of rolled oats
  • 1 pinch of salt

Method :

Lightly simmer feijoas and apples in the lime juice. Cover them with the zest  and with the maple syrup. Meanwhile, rub the butter into dry ingredients until the mixture has the texture of breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruits and bake at 180°C for 35-40 min or until well browned!

Bon appétit !
