Do you feel like you’re constantly throwing out feijoa skins? Try our Feijoa Fizz – not only is it tasty and refreshing, it also uses parts of the feijoa usually discarded! While you wait for the skins to ferment into a delicious drink, get the kids involved by teaching them about fermentation! 

Tip: Serve in a tall glass with ice and with a splash of vodka or gin for a feijoa cocktail. 

Tip: It’s important that the fruit isn’t exposed to the air while it’s fermenting – this could lead to a mouldy batch that needs discarding.  

Prep Time: 5 mins  

Ferment Time: 3 – 4 days  

Ingredients 

  • 8-10 feijoa skins, washed 
  • 4 Tbsp Pams White Sugar  
  • litre water  

Directions 

  1. Loosely fill a large, sterilised container with the feijoa skins. Add half of the sugar, then cover with the water.  
  2. Place a weight on top of the feijoa skins to press the fruit down, ensuring they’re completely covered by water. Cover your container with a tea towel and secure with a rubber band. Leave on your kitchen bench for two to three days.  
  3. Strain the liquid into a sterilised bottle or jar, then stir in the remaining sugar. Seal tightly with a lid and leave in the fridge for one day.
