  • Juice and rind of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 Tbspn crystallized ginger

  • If serving with Gluten Free Scones please ensure all ingredients used are gluten free.


  1. Peel and chop feijoas, place in a medium sized saucepan along with the lemon juice.
  2. Simmer over a low heat for approximately 30 minutes or until most of the liquid is gone. Stir occasionally to prevent the fruit from sticking to the base of the saucepan.
  3. Once the liquid in the feijoas has reduced add the lemon rind, crystallized ginger and chia seeds and stir through.
  4. Put aside to cool and thicken. If you prefer a more pureed style of jam the mixture can be whizzed in a food processor before being put aside to cool.
  5. This jam must be stored in the fridge and may be kept for several weeks.
