I have a loquat that produced fruit for the first time this spring. I made "jam" out of them and used that as a base for a red onion relish to braise rabbit. It was awesome! Tuna would be great with loquat, too. I'll have to try this next year.
Wow, the braised rabbit sounds wonderful! If you end up making this, please let me know how it turns out. :-)
Coming in a little late but, great post! Loquats are in full swing just now in Northern California. Just about to make liqueur, pondering pate de fruits, and after your raving about the chutney, ready to try that as well. Excited!
Thanks! I hope you like it. If you come up with any other great loquat recipes, please come back and share. I'll add them to my Pinterest board for loquat inspiration: http://pinterest.com/fullandcontent/food-inspiration-loquats/
I can't wait to try to make the chutney!
