16 cups of washed and sliced feijoas
1 cup sugar to each cup juice
1 Tbl lemon juice to each cup juice

Place sliced feijoas in a large pan. Just cover with water. Crush with a wooden spoon. Boil slowly until soft. Strain into a large pan. Boil for 5 minutes.

Measure juice, add sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Boil until it gels when tested. Pour into hot sterilized jars. Seal.

To gel test: Place a saucer in the refrigerator until cold. Spoon some hot jelly onto saucer. If it thickens like jelly when cold, it's ready.

* Note: this is a spread, American style, not a jellied dessert.
