Stages of cooking

  1. Peel feijoa, but don’t throw away the peels. We will need them later. Put the fruit into the bowl with cold water for a while to prevent them from darkening.

  2. If your feijoa are too hard, stick them with a sharp fork.

  3. Take a pot, add sugar into it and one tablespoon of water. Put the pot on small fire and keep stirring the syrup until it is ready.

  4. Take the pot away from fire and carefully add hot boiling water inside. Put feijoa peels into the pot and boil them for about 7 minutes, then strain the sugar syrup.


  5. Now, add feijoa fruit and boil them for about 40 minutes on medium fire, stirring the jam. Add cognac into the jam at the end of cooking.

  6. As soon as the jam cools down, spoon it into the glass jars and keep them in a fridge. Bon appétit!
