Harvest Shot for September 15-16, 2015


Greetings from Morning Song!
You'll notice we're harvesting our guavas this week at last! This is the first week of harvest as they're just coming in. Leave on counter until they are slightly soft when pressed, much like you would an avocado. Some people enjoy the skin as I do, others cut long-wise and scoop the delicious flesh out as you would a melon.

I like them right out of hand, but have also sliced, frozen and used in smoothies. I also leave the skin on, and slice thin and include in salads. The skin has a minty kind of flavor when perfectly ripe.
