How to make it

  • Scoop out the flesh of the feijoas and blitz until smooth.
  • Into a bowl and using a spatula, push the smooth feijoa flesh through a sieve. Remember to scrape the feijoa on the underside of the sieve into the bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, yolks, and sugar.
  • Over a low heat, melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan. If you are increasing the quantity, you may want to use a wider pan in order to speed up the setting of the curd.
  • Stir in the feijoa and the egg and sugar mixture.
  • Whisk constantly over a low heat until it has come together and has thickened, almost like custard. This took me approximately 15 minutes. Do not forget to stop whisking as you do not want to cook the eggs.
  • Pour the curd into a bowl and cover once cooled. It can then be refrigerated or used immediately.

    I will keep my eye out for Feijoas at our local markets - do they go by any other name? I would love to try it!
