Banana Guava Pie

help  I want to make a Banana Guava Pie as at the weekend i'm cooking Shoyu chicken with Corn on the cobb and Citrus kick Cous cous, and thought this pie would make a nice dessert.
In keeping with the Hawaiian theme.

My question is, and please excuse my ignorance, but  the recipe requires Guava Nectar, would this be the same as Guava Juice.
I can pop up the recipe if it would make more sense.
Hope you my fellow foodies can help...... wink

Re: Banana Guava Pie

Joobes, I think you're safe using guava juice, just be sure it's not mixed with other juices which might make it too thin and runny.

Re: Banana Guava Pie

Thanks MsPablo, the only other liquid is 1 tablespoon of lemon juice so that shouldn't make a lot of difference. And there is cornflour in it aswell.

Have you ever tried it before. Its all new to me.  hmm

Re: Banana Guava Pie

Yes, it's very thick, sweet and a fairly mild fruity taste.  Guava paste is a common ingredient, I believe, in central and south American cuisines, at least my teacher from Columbia made us guava paste sweets, they're much like French pate des fruits.

I thought of serving the banana Guava with a little bit of vanilla ice-cream.....again it may not be entirely authentic but hey what the hell   whistle

Coconut ice cream might be nice.

Re: Banana Guava Pie

Guava nectar is I think a bit more syrupy than just staright froward guava juce, if you have any shops the sell Aisian / Indian produce then have a look in there.
I am pretty sure I have seen it sold in cartons made by 'Rubicon '.
