A must for any Feijoa lover and so easy! I first tried this when I was about 18 at Le Brie in Auckland and it’s been a family favourite ever since.
Place water and sugar in a pot that is large enough to hold all the fruit.
Place on the stove and gently bring to a simmer.
Continue to simmer until it just starts to turn golden and caramelise. It should take about 5-10 minutes. Be careful not to burn the sugar mix as it starts to caramelise.
As soon as it starts to go golden, pour in all the fruit a once. It will bubble and may spit a little. Then continue to stir for another 30 seconds.
Place a scoop of ice cream in each bowl. Divide the hot fruit out into each bowl and serve immediately.
4-5 feijoas per person, half and scoop out flesh, reserve in a bowl, discard skins
1 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup water
Kohu Road vanilla ice cream
