GUAVA CHEESE


Guava Cheese is a typical Anglo-Indian Christmas Sweet dish. This chewy fudge-like sweet is a “Must Have” during the Christmas Season.
Guava Cheese should always be made with fresh guavas.

GUAVA CHEESE
Serves 6   Preparation time 1 hour

Ingredients
6 ripe guavas preferably the pink variety
¾ cup sugar
50 grams unsalted butter
 ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
A drop of cochineal colouring

Wash and cut the guavas into quarters and boil them well in a little water till nice and soft.  Mash well. Strain through a thin cloth and throw away the skin and seeds. Boil the strained thick juice with the sugar and keep on stirring till the mixture turns slightly thick. Add the butter, vanilla essence and cochineal. Simmer till nice and thick. Pour onto a buttered plate. Cut into squares when cold.
