  • Nice recipe. I will try when feijoas are ripe.


  • Used gold kiwi fruit instead of feijoas - just as nice.

  • I made the apple and feiijoa crumble for a dessert at a dinner I had and the people didn't know there were feijoas in it great since they didn't like them


  • Can you have recipes without sugar or suggest the amount of an alternative to sugar, please 😊
