When fruit is in abundance, make this fruit concentrate. I used guavas as I had a box of them to use up and did not want any to go to waste.
I have the most organized desk you can possibly imagine. Everything has its place and there are trays and folders for each and every piece of paper. So, when I cannot find something I get into a mild state. Today I lost our card to use at the garage to get air miles when we put petrol into the company vehicle. I eventually found it in the top drawer of my desk. I must have swept it into there while tidying up something else. But what I cannot find are my notes on how I made the fruit concentrate. I am typing this recipe from memory and hopefully I will find the scrap piece of paper I used to confirm that what I think I did, I actually did. And that is really a lesson learnt, I should stop writing recipes on pieces of paper. But this tends to happen as I am so far behind in my writing. As I sit here, I have 6 recipe books on my desk and 2 notebooks, and several pieces of paper with my handwriting on them. I used guavas in my fruit concentrate as I was gifted a box from Teresa, and I did not want them to go to waste. Make use of any fruit you have to hand and keep some in the freezer to use at a later stage.
