Loquat ideas, anyone?

I have so many loquats on my tree right now. Picture ths: the tree is taller than my 2-story house and is about 12' wide. It is in full-fruit right now, with hundreds of lucious treats. I love eating them right off of the tree, but because so MANY are ripe right now, I'm wondering if anyone has any recipes. Around southern California, most people either have a tree or know someone with one, but I don't believe they're that popular in many states. Here's a photo of what they look like, as a fruit, just before they're ripe:

The fruit tastes like a mix between an apricot, a peach and a plum. Very juicy, about the size of a golf ball, and with a tart skin (super easy to peel).

Any ideas? Thanks!

yep, I've seen those too, but I'm not particularly fond of making preserves.


I did find one recipe for loquat pie I may make tonight, but it says to leave a few seeds in, as they are nutty and tasty. However, I was always led to believe the seeds were poisonous. I found a link that says the same thing.
Click here: Toxic Plants
(I'm guessing the person who posted the seed idea is either superhuman or hasn't tried the pie).

one more note: the other name for loquat is Japanese Plum.

I'm wondering if they would be good in a cobbler too ?
Just replace peaches or whatever with the loquats ?
