  • 3 lbs loquats, halved and de-seeded
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  • Add the halved and de-seeded loquats to a large saucepan. Add enough water just to cover the loquats. Bring to a boil, once boiling, reduce heat and allow loquats to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Loquats should be tender but intact
  • Drain water from the loquats. Place loquats in a high powered blender and blend until desired consistency is reached (I like mine smooth but it can be chunky as well)
  • Put loquat puree back to the saucepan. Add in the honey and lemon juice and stir well to combine. Heat over a medium heat until the butter has thickened slightly, stirring often to prevent burning on the bottom. This should take 15-20 mins
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before transferring to glass jars and storing in the fridge
