I would like to share with everyone this method of preparing guava. So far, everyone who has tried it can't keep their hands off the tub of guava!!

3 guavas, seeded and sliced very thinly-about 2mm thick
2 packages of dried madarin orange skin sliced thinly into strips
(You can get this from Watsons-a pack of 5 or 6 for $1.99. black and orange packaging)
1 red chilli sliced thinly (optional)

Marinate everything together and leave overnight or about 6-8 hours in the fridge. Eat it while it's chilled.

I learnt this from my Grandma who in turn learnt it from her friend. 3 Guavas seems like a lot but I'm pretty sure it'll be gone in no time.

Gina, I'm not sure where to post this so appreciate it if you can put it where u feel it belongs.

None at all. Once you put it in the fridge, the guava will be a bit wet.

Yup, eat it while still chilled. I received feedback that the dried orange skin has dissappeared from Watson's but I recently found them at Ang Mo Supermart.

Yvne,

Besides guava, orange peel and optional chilli, do we need to add sugar and salt?

I love to eat guava and would like to give this receipe a try.

There's no need to put any salt or sugar. The dried mandarin orange peel has gives enough flavour already.

It's not the ones in the red bean soup - that's not 'marinated' ~ tasteless except for the fragrance. It's also not the candied ones as they are very sweet. It's something like the asam boi but made from mandarin peel.

It's the type that many of us asians, esp the older generation ones like to eat in between meals or those tat pregnant woman eat : "kiam sng tee" type of orange peel, a bit sour and sweet type. Try buying the darker colour type as I tried the lighter colour ones but it didn't give as much flavour so not as nice.

Just bought one packet of orange peel which cost S$0.50 and looks quite dry and black. Wonder if I have got the right stuff. Bought from a shop selling chinese medicines and sweets etc.

Please advise where to get correct ones as I thought of making it tonight.

I assume you are in Singapore? You can get the peels at Ang Mo or Sheng Shiong or even some chinese medicine shops. You may have gotten the correct ones already from your discription. The ones I buy comes in orange and black packing.

Made marinated guava using ripe guava and dried orange peels and kept in fridge for two day. End result: not nice cos not much taste and orange peels stain the guava giving the bitter taste. Can anyone tell me where have I gone wrong? TIA

U have to use guavas that are not so ripe. The ripe ones become soft and musy after 2 days. You may have gotten the wrong peels. These are the peels that you can eat and should not be bitter.

the packet ones which we can eat directly. Thank you. Smile

On Tuesday night, I made this marinated guava - 6 guavas and now there's only 1 small bowl left. This is really yummilicious and additive. Thanks, Yvne, for this easy & yummy recipe. Will definitely be making more.

Su Xian, I took a photo of the mandarin peel. Hope it will help you find the right one.

Thanks, Yvne for this easy and yummy way to eat Guava ! I just marinated it and before I chilled it, took 1 slice......"wow, very very shiok" ! Thanks.

Here's the pictures. I found the orange peel at a tit-bits shop at Marine Parade. 4 packets for $1/- The shop is located behind the ex-Republic Theatre and next to the video shop "TS Video".
