Guava sweet and sour sauce
Hawaiians throw great parties (with a name like "luau" it even sounds great), and red guava is a popular, appetizing treat. Here's a sauce you may find at one of these gatherings, ready for dipping anything from chips to wontons.
- 2 red guava
- 1 medium tomato, chopped
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced
- 1 poblano chili, diced
- 3 limes
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- Peel the red guavas, and cut into large pieces. Add the guava and tomatoes to a food processor. Pulse until relatively smooth. Push through a metal strainer to remove the seeds. Set aside.
- Over medium heat, heat the oil in a medium saucepan for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and chili, and sauté for 3 minutes.
- Add the guava and tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Stir in the juice of 3 limes, vinegar, soy sauce and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat.
- Simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
- Serve with wontons, sushi or chicken wings.
