My local fruit shop was selling guavas and I bought some on impulse.

However, now I'm not quite sure how to eat them... Best on their own fresh, or does anyone have a recipe suggestion?

I also bought some fennel, another thing I've never used before. Any suggestions for that too?

Thanks guys :)

Yep! Salad from finely chopped fennel, orange wedges and black olives is superb! Salad dressing made out of orange juice, olive oil and a little mustard to accompany!

I'm not sure about guava, but here are three things you can do with fennel:

1) Juice it with an apple and celery and/or green veggies, or just on its own. Fennel makes a delicious juice.

2) Sautee in olive oil with chopped ginger, turmeric, onions and perhaps garlic, add sea salt at the end.

3) Grate or chop finely into a salad with (grated) carrots and baby spinach/lacinato kale with an avocado-lime-sea salt dressing. This is just one kind of salad. Fresh fennel is delicious.

When you do any of the above, rip off all of the feathery leafy stuff, but leave the celery-like stalks. THEN wash it. You can also save the feathery stuff for lightly flavoring things: just hold up a bunch and hack away with scissors above whatever you're flavoring. It's kind of a dill-y flavor. This would probably be nice on your salad.

Save some fennel to make tea when you're feeling gassy :) It's an all-star cure for bloating and gas.

I am on a guava kick! A client recommended pork loin in the crock pot with guavas. I tried it with a slice of pineapple thrown in for good luck. Sweet juicy meat. Excellent!

I'd just eat the guava raw/make it into a fruit salad with some bananas, etc. I also like fennel juiced- great with apple & lemon. You could also roast it- would go great with a roasted chicken & other veggies. When I used to make cassoulet in my pre-paleo days, the recipe I used called for fennel; I'll have to try making it with soaked beans sometime.
