Fresh Guava with Lime and Sugar

The Guava trees are laden with fruit and the fragrance permeating the house from the harvested pink guavas is amazing.

This is a simple way to enjoy the flavour and freshness of guavas and reap the benefit of their high vitamin C content. In fact, the vitamin C of one guava is equivalent to that of 5 oranges.
