Just to keep your interest up. She is in one of the private shows during dinner one night. Chris, Remember Beaver Creek, the fire dancer, hula girls behind the paper screens and all those fresh flown in leis. All the ladies jumped on stage and started dancing and we thought the stage was going to collapse. Ha, what fun. We are going to have even more fun together here.
Make yourself my Guava mini-cheesecakes and get a taste of the Islands.
... "Surprisingly healthy, research from the Guardian Health Guardian, January 19th, 2010, the article about super foods: "100 grams of guava gives you more than twice potassium as compared to apples, four times more vitamin C than oranges for the same amount and yet, it is not considered a super star fruit. Strange, isn’t it?"
"It doesn't appears in Hawaii until the early 1800's. Now it occurs throughout the Pacific islands. No one knows for sure where the Guava tree originated, most speculate Mexico or Central America. Today it grows in both tropical and sub-tropical regions all over the world. India has many plantations, so does Thailand and Spain. It is grown in Florida and in Hawaii. As long as it doesn't freeze, for Guava trees die in a freeze although sometimes the Guava trees have been know to grow up again from the roots."
Here's my spin on my daughter, Diane's, mini-cheesecake recipe. In a muffin pan with paper-cup liners place one vanilla wafer cookie in each space. Option: I like to put a bunch of vanilla wafers in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin, crush the 'Nilla Wafers'. Put a loaded Tablespoon in the bottom of each liner, then tap it down with a juice glass. Blend: 1/2 cup sugar 2 packages 8 oz cream cheese 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 Tablespoon Guava Juice Fill Muffin cups almost to the top. Bake at 375° for 18 minutes. Turn off the oven, leave the oven door open and let the little cakes cool completely. This topping "takes the cake" to another level. Guava Gel Glaze: 2 C Guava juice 1/2 C Sugar 1 Tablespoon Grenadine 1/4 C Cornstarch Bring the juice and sugar to a boil. Take off heat. Make a paste from cornstarch, Grenadine and a little water. Stir the paste into juice pan. Return to heat, boil for one minute or until thick. Spoon on each mini-cheese cake in the muffin pan. Cool cheesecake in the muffin pan in refrigerator until ready to serve. Freezes well.
