Feijoas poached in wine

Feijoas poached in wine by Carole's Chatter

Feijoas poached in wine – a real treat!  If you are familiar with feijoas (you might know them as Pineapple Guavas) then you'll know that they have a distinctive and fabulous flavour.
I heated up ¾ cup of sugar, 1 cup of white wine (I used viognier but it could be any white wine), ½ cup of water, juice of ½ a lemon, splosh of vanilla essence and a couple of bay leaves.  I simmered the feijoas cut in half in this mixture for 10 minutes.  Then take the feijoas out and boil the remaining liquid until it is syrupy.
You can serve this just with a little cream – my preference – or you could add some chopped nuts on top!


  1. Never heard of feijoas. Being from Hawaii, I'm more than familiar with pineapples and guavas, but not pineapple guavas. :)

  2. I bet my husband would LOVE that recipe!!

  3. I'm with Jama! (well, not from Hawaii, but lived there for a short time). This looks like a great treat.

  4. I have never heard of feijoas either and this sounds tasty.
