G - Guava



Guava

For letter G, the only food picture I have left in my Flickr is this picture of a guava, taken in 2008 in our house in La Union. This fruit isn't included in my favorites, though at times I take pleasure of eating it, especially those with soft flesh. I don't quite like the many seeds insides that are very tough to chew.

This guava isn't ripe yet... people here call this type the Guapple - guava apple - because it's about the size of a typical apple when it is ripe. The smaller kinds were used to make jams and is used in Sinigang dishes as one of the souring agents. Those smaller types where the ones I prefer. I don't seem to like eating the guapple, though I could say that sliced ripe guapple tasted good when dipped in vinegar and salt.

Guava juice is delicious alone or mixed with other fruit juices, especially passion fruit!

I can honestly say I have never tasted a guava, and I'm not sure I want to! It does make a great 'G' though - that photo is excellent!

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
