Guayaba

August 23, 2013

guayaba

Guayabas are wholly edible.  Their thin skin can be bitten through and is not unpleasant.  The fruit itself is firm but not crisp and slightly tart.  However they do contain a sparse set of small, very hard white seeds that are reminiscent of a coarse sand.

Perhaps more common though, guayabas are be blended with water and sugar.  A sieve is recommended to remove the seeds.

A guayaba tea results from boiling guayaba slices, canela, and celery.  This tea is given to those suffering from digestive distress.

This guayaba was purchased at the Los Paisitas fruteria in the Chapinero barrio of Bogotá.
