I have this next door neighbour, and really, he means well when he drops over a plastic bag full of white guava. But what one does one do with 50 guava? And I haven’t even told you about the fruit flies and the smell. Oh, the smell! While they are delicious, they do kind of smell like…cat piss.
…JUICE THE SUCKERS!
Hopefully I haven’t completely turned you off. I managed to give some away to a friend who couldn’t stand the smell, but absolutely loved the taste. Apparently all of her flatmates put up a bit of a protest at the stench of having them in the house. (I don’t blame them!) On the verge of throwing them out (I know, I know, I hate waste too!) I decided to bust out my juicer and juice the suckers!
The guava juice is thick, sweet and unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. There’s no smell at all. Promise. Add a little mint and you’ve got instant z-z-zing. It’s like a healthy slurpee without having to trudge to 7-Eleven in your trackies at midnight. Not that I would do that. Cough. MC
