What do do with bucket of green guavas?

junipero | Sep 9, 2012 09:14 AM

Someone gave me a big bucket of green guavas from their tree. I believe they are apple guavas? I say that because I Googled them and they basically fit that description. They are kind of dry and apple textured inside with a mild floral guava/apple taste and the skin is quite tart and not very flavorful. They are pretty unappetizing raw. Not terrible, just not very flavorful and a little mealy in texture. At first when I didn't realize there were different varieties of guavas I thought, Yay! Luscious, pink, fragrant guava jam like I had in Hawaii! But now I realize this is a totally different fruit and I don't know what to do with it.

I also have a big bag of bruised farmers market nectarines that I was planning on using for jam so I could probably add the guava to that but......Any other ideas?
