Happy Hump Day Cinquecento Readers.
If you’ve never tried fresh guava, why not make today the day? Call around to your local grocers and see if your store carries guava. If not, or if you prefer to buy local, then you might as well resign yourself to planning your next vacation in Taiwan.
Today I’m telling you that Taiwan’s guava is scrumptious!
This prepared guava was picked up at the local 7-11 store, and served with a small packet of cinnamon sugar. I skipped the topping and went right for the unadulterated guava goodness.
The texture is very much like a perfectly ripe apple, yet not quite so fibrous. Er, perhaps guava is more fibrous, or there is more water held in the fruit’s fiber structure. For guava is crisp and crunchy but not as dense as an apple.
The flavor is mild with a undeniable hint of tartness. Although the water filling the large guava fibers quench your thirst, guava is not overly juicy as you eat it. And, eat it you should. Delicious!
Guava? What is it good for? Lots and lots of jelly. Uh.
(Song to the tune of:
What is it good for?
Lots and lots of Jelly.
Listen to me…
