If you're lucky, you have friends that get you. I am lucky. This time
last year Cayce and I foraged in the Bay Area and I fell in love with bay nuts
This year, feeling sorry for myself as I recuperate from knee surgery, I was brought out of my funk when a fragrant box arrived on my doorstep. I knew right away there were feijoa inside.
Their perfume is outstanding. And tucked in and among the fragrant fruit were two bags of bay nuts. Such riches.
So what do I make?
hot pepper and feijoa jelly?
feijoa ice cream and feijoa cake with feijoa syrup?
Here in the NE we can't grow feijoa, so it's not an ingredient I'm super-familiar with. But I love it! And I'm determined to make the most of this rare harvest.
I'd like to try something new. Cayce's going to make wine, which is tempting... But I'd love to hear suggestions from any feijoa lovers out there. And if you can work bay nuts into the recipe, well, that would be the icing on the cake. Maybe literally.
