Default Cooking with feijoas

My feijoa tree is now bearing and I would like some advice about how
to cook with the fruit. The feijoa (pineapple guava) is an odd taste,
sweet/sour/astringent/pungent/fruity.

I know I can google for a 1000 recipes but many will have been copied
by people who have never seen a feijoa much less actually used them.

To those who have used feijoas what is a good way to eat them apart
from just as a raw fruit?

David

Our feijoa trees are dropping fruit at the rate of several kilos a
day, so I'll be watching this thread closely. I love them raw, but my
wife doesn't like the taste and I can only eat so many. Trying to give
them away is difficult, as everyone else's feijoa trees are also
fruiting. Talk about too much of a good thing ...

My mother made feijoa jam once... that was pretty good. Most of the
time she just left the fruit for the birds though.

One of my workmates brought in feijoa muffins the other day. They were
lovely.
