Feijoa Jam

Homemade Jam in Less than 30 Minutes!

Feijoa, an egg-sized tree fruit native to South America, especially Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina, has a bright, sweet-tart taste and pale green, juicy flesh. Frozen GOYA® Feijoa Fruit Pulp is perfect for cooking into puddings and pie fillings, making sweet drinks and preserving as thick jam. Here, we add sugar and a sprinkling of fresh ginger for a sweet, tart jam that’s perfect for paring with cheese and spreading onto crackers.
