Thank you to all those that sent in recipes for Feijoas. I have to say that Feijoa and coconut cake is devine and probably one of my favourite cakes, I want to say a special thanks to Caroline who wrote Hi Lloyd and Harry and Harrys dad,
If you google Peter Gordons Roast Feijoa and Manuka Chutney recipe you will find something divine.I made it when I had a glut of feijoas in our previous garden.Sadly I am still waiting for the one year old trees to come into fruit in this garden.This is one of the most amazing flavours you will ever eat!!!! Great with everything from meat to cheese.
Envy the glut. Kind regards, Caroline
Well I did the appropriate google printed off the recipe sheet and handed it over to dad, Well just as Caroline says its divine

3 Kg peeled Feijoas, roughly chopped
1 kg Peeled red onions finely sliced
8 large green chillies stems removed and cut into fine strips
2 kg castor sugar
2 large dessert spoons sea salt
330mls cider vinegar
5 large sweet lemons the juice and zest cut into fine strips
1 10cm piece of manuka branch with leaves washed
1 cinnamon quill broken up roughly
6 green cardamom crushed
6 black cardamom
1 dessertspoon dried chili flakes
Mix the first seven ingredients together and leave in a covered bowl overnight
Next day add remaining ingredients and mix well then place in a non-corrosive roasting dish and place in an oven preheated to 180c
It will take between 2 to 3 hours to cook at which point you will need to have stirred it from time to time.
It is cooked when the liquid has mostly evaporated and the onions and fruit have begun to caramelise slightly
Taste for seasoning then spoon into very hot sterilised jars and seal
