Recipe: Feijoa, pear and raspberry crumble

Drowning in feijoas, or can't get enough of them? Either way, this is a delicious way to deal with a glut. We have 30 feijoa trees. Nine fewer than we had this time last year, and yet still far more than we know what to do with! At the peak of the season we collect a wheelbarrow full of feijoas.

PRESERVED LEMONS

(Makes a 1 litre jar) Make sure you lift lemons out of the jar with tongs. Use chopped preserved lemon rind as a flavour enhancer to salad, pasta or fish dishes. The lemons do need to be totally underneath the liquid. To use the lemons, remove from the brine and discard the pulp. Wash the peel and use. Some white cryst

Why the humble guava is worth the palaver

Don't let those brazen feijoas steal the limelight – guavas are also ubiquitous at this time of year, and their flavour is just as curiously delicious. Yes, I know, the feijoas are haemorrhaging again. I like feijoas but they have a habit of throwing themselves at you. One of my neighbours said

Preserved Lemons

Preserved lemons are traditionally used in Middle Eastern cuisine, and can also be a tasty addition to fish and pastas. This recipe is a favourite of one of the Tui team members, and is a great way to make the most of the abundance of lemons in your (or your neighbours!) backyard.
