In my house, I have a loquat tree. In case anyone has never had a loquat (I never had till last year) they’re a soft fruit rather like a mild apricot in taste.
The tree is rather prolific, and in a few more days I’m going to have a LOT of loquats on my hands.
I also have a daughter whose school is having the yearly fete in about three weeks time, which includes a preserves stall for which I’ve already made some stuff, and is still hanging out for more supplies.
However, if I’m going to put these loquats to good use, I need a good recipe for something. The only experienced advice I’ve had so far is from my mother-in-law (and I quote) “My husband would tell you to make loquat jam, but honestly I don’t think it tastes very nice.” Hardly a glowing recommendation for the family cookbook!
So I turn to the dope. Of course there are loquat recipes all over the web, but I’d much rather get some personal recommendations. Anyone got one?
