What do you do with guavas?
« on: August 22, 2018, 10:33:22 AM »
I like the taste of guavas but they're really annoying to eat because of the seeds. Does cooking them make the seeds edible (or chewable, I guess I should say)? Do you have any guava recipes? I've noticed blending them doesn't really get rid of the seeds either.  Is there a variety of guavas with edible seeds?

Guavas  have  pectin. By cooking them and passing through a strainer you can make guava jam. If you pass through a straining cloth you can make  guava jelly. You can get instructions on You Tube  or you contact me.
 In Brazil  in many restaurants they serve Romeu & Juliet for dessert ( A slice of guava jam  on side with a slice of cheddar or Edam cheese)  or Guava Ice Cream.
