3 cups loquats, pitted 1 cup white sugar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon allspice 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup water
In a saucepan mix the ingredients. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, and fill the pie dish. Cover the top with crumble crust of oatmeal, gingersnaps, or flour and brown sugar. Bake until crispy.
I thought it was too sweet. Next time I make it I am going to decrease the white sugar to 1/2, add a Tablespoon of cornstarch to make it less runny and decrease the water to 1/4 cup. I really like my own crumble which is 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup flour. Pastry cut the butter into the rest of the ingredients. Topped it and baked it for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. First time using Loquat it was very tasty!

I have 2 loquat tress in my yard. I never knew what to do with them, but I tried this recipe for some friends I had over . I used my own crumble top recipe and I will say thank you thank you for this recipe. It was so delicious that I was shocked. I am so happy to have a delicious dessert recipe for my loquats. If you have loquats , this is for sure a rockin recipe

This was my first time cooking loquats. A kind family allowed us to pick a ton of loquats from their backyard tree & we were so grateful to have buckets of this delicious fruit.
I followed this recipe but doubled the amount of loquats, spices, etc & also cut the sugar by 1/3. It was absolutely delicious! The loquats have an almost cherry-like consistency when cooked in this recipe. I used my crumble topping recipe to finish it off. It was awesome. Everyone really loved it. Note: It took about 30 minutes to pit 6 cups of loquats, so having a helper or two would be a good idea.

This is a good dish! If I had to say something about it I would say that it has a little to much allspice.
For the topping try just instant oatmeal mix(has oats and sugar and spices)
Also try it on vinala icecreem

YEah, rightly named, CRUMBL-E. There is no temp. setting and I tried the flour and brown sugar mix but was surprised not to see "cut butter" in the ingredients for the topping. I was pretty disappointede in the recipe.
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
