Guavas and Guava Punch


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!

    I love Guavas!! I’s sad we don’t get them here in Illinois. When I was pregnant I craved them so much, I had to settle for frozen or in heavy syrup!
