    ½ cup water

    1 tsp grated fresh ginger

    grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

    1 cup sugar

    1 tsp butter

  • 1. Scoop out the feijoa flesh and chop it roughly. Put into a jam pan with the water, ginger and lemon zest and juice, and simmer until the fruit is soft.

  • 4. Pour the jam into sterilised jars and cover tightly.
