Ingredients to make Guava Cheese

  • 4 medium Ripe guavas
  • sugar
  • lemon juice
  • butter

How to make Guava Cheese

  1. Wash the guavas, wipe them dry and cut them into small pieces. Add enough water to cover the fruit and pressure cook till soft (2 whistles).
  2. Cool, mash and strain the pulp using a steel strainer. Discard seeds.
  3. For every 1cup of strained pulp add 1 cup of sugar and ¼ teaspoon of lemon juice.
  4. Transfer pulp to a thick bottom steel wok. Add lemon juice.
  5. Cook on medium flame. The mixture will bubble a lot. Keep stirring. When the mixture thickens and becomes darker in colour and reduces in volume, add butter (1 tablespoon butter for every cup of pulp).
  6. Cook till it become thick and you feel an effort in stirring it and the mixture begins to collect in the center like a big ball. Keep a greased ceramic or steel plate ready.
  7. Put some mixture in the plate and roll it between thumb and index finger. If it forms a ball, it is done or else cook again till it reaches this stage.
  8. Remove from heat, pour the mixture in a greased baking dish and spread it evenly with the ladle. You can also apply oil/butter to your palm and spread it evenly.
  9. Let it cool a bit. Cut with a greased knife while it is warm.
  10. Let the cheese cool completely. Remove the pieces from the dish. Wrap the pieces in butter paper or cut them into smaller pieces and roll them in fine sugar.
  11. Store in an airtight container.

My Tip:

Use Guavas of the winter crop. The Guavas are sweet and full of pectin.
