It’s that time of year again when we count our blessings and muse about the things we should be thankful for. I harvested today fruits from our guava tree. I look forward to this time of the year when it gives us delicious guavas. Somehow, biting into one evokes childhood memories for me. I remember that my grandfather used to make delicious guava jellies, he would boil them, after that he would put them in a strainer to take the seeds out and put lots of sugar to make it into guava jellie.
I have a recipe I kept from Martha Stewart magazine for Guava punch, I like it because it is simple, it only has three ingredients. I have made this for friends and always gets compliments.
- 2 quarts chilled guava nectar (sold in cans or frozen concentrate in Latino groceries and some supermarkets).
- 3 fresh guavas
- 2 chilled bottles of champagne or sparkling wine
Directions: Combine guava nectar and champagne in a punch bowl, add guava slices, serve over ice and enjoy!
