I seal all my jams, pickles, chutneys and other preserves hot, that way as they cool the seal sets, you can hear the seal pop, and this means they are airtight should not go mouldy.
My feijoa recipe says to peel the skins but leave some peel on. hard to describe but I peel them so they are striped.

thanks. Did not peel them and they are cooking down nicely. An hour from now will be all done. I will seal while hot .
