Found these amazing pink guavas on my way back home in the fruit market and i grabbed them immediately as they are not very common to find. We always get the white varieties in abundance but this year i have been seeing these ones. They have amazing flavour and soft and juicy skin . They are not as sweet as the white ones though.
Found an interesting granita recipe sometime back . Made few changes for added flavour and colour.
Quiet happy with the result actually..
800 gms semi ripe guavas
300 gms sugar
juice of 1 lemon
300 ml water to cook the guavas
300ml chilled water
Finely chopped mint - 3 tbsp
Few drops of rose water for serving
Mix sugar and water and let it simmer.
Now gently drop the guavas one by one.
Run it in the blender with the water and puree it. Add 300 ml of chilled water and puree it mix juice of 1 lemon and pour it into a dish.
Just to have a two tone and some flavour i added finely chopped mint to it. Mix well and keep it in the freezer for about two hours.
