    4 cups water
    2 cups Chelsea Raw or White Sugar
    4 cinnamon sticks
    4 star anise
    8 cardamom pods or whole cloves
    2-2.5 kg fresh feijoas (depending on size)


    In a large saucepan combine water, sugar and spices and heat gently stirring until sugar has dissolved then simmer 2 minutes. Peel and cut feijoas in half or quarters depending on size and poach in spiced sugar syrup for 4-6 minutes until just tender. Remove feijoas with a slotted spoon and arrange in sterilised jars, dividing the spices between the jars. Pour over hot syrup and seal with lids. Allow to settle and cool. Sealed jars will last at least 3 months or store in a glass bowl, covered in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
