Guava is my all-time favorite fruit, it has a pungent sweet smell that is not overpowering. If there were guava perfumes, I’d wear it in a heartbeat. Too bad the weather in Canada is not particularly friendly to guavas, so when there are imports from Mexico, I always stock them up.
One dish I enjoy making is sugar and honey poached guava, this works well for small guavas. Much like poached pears, wine is an essential part of the process. I like to use sweet white wine because guavas does not pair well with dry.
I also add some walnuts to the mix, remember to grind them afte poaching to add to the taste.
