The scent of fresh guava is enough to inspire visions of lounging in a hammock in a tropical retreat.
The guava seed sac is similar to that of a tomato, and the seed sac is removed before the fruit is used. The skin is thin, so it’s easy to peel, and although it doesn’t look very nice, there’s a delicious pulp inside.
If you want to serve something a little exotic, Mexican guava water is a great option. Guava water is a little richer than other waters, similar to fruit nectar. Serve very chilled over ice. Add some white rum and soda water and mix well.
- 1 cup guava, peeled, seeded and cut into cubes
- 5 cups water
- 1/2 cup sugar or to taste
1. Place the guava in a blender with enough water to cover.
2. Mix the guava and water until combined and form a smooth and thick paste.
3. Transfer to a jug, add the remaining water and sugar and stir well. Don’t be nervous.
4. Chill well, then add ice and enjoy.
