Grandma Dell’s Spiced Feijoas

2lb sugar
2 cups malt vinegar
¼ oz cinnamon
¼ oz mace
¼ oz whole cloves
4lb feijoas   (peeled – use small fruit or cut larger ones up)


Boil sugar, vinegar and spices 20 minutes.
Add fruit and cook till just tender – will not take long
Put into sterilized jars and seal.
Leave at least a couple of months before opening. The longer the better the flavour.

We serve with savoury dishes meats, ham – also great with cheese & crackers.  I gave a jar to a friend and she served them over ice cream and said they were delicious.
