  • 600g feijoas

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cardamom

Crumble:

  2. Peel and slice apples and feijoas.
  3. Place the sliced fruit, coconut sugar, cinnamon and cardamom into a saucepan. Add ½ cup of water and stew until the fruit is soft, but still holding its shape. Taste for sweetness – some feijoas are more sour than others, so you may need to add little bit more sugar depending on your taste.
  4. Combine all ingredients for the crumble in a bowl and mix well with spatula.
  5. Transfer the stewed fruit into an oven-proof dish. Sprinkle the crumble evenly on top, ensuring all the fruit is covered.
