This week's MENU recipe is Guava Fool

It's Guava season and this is so quick and easy to make. We hope you find it as delicious as we do.
1 Kg ripe guavas, peeled and chopped - juice of half a lemon – 75g caster sugar - 300ml water -
250 ml thick Ayrshire cream or real vanilla custard
Put everything into an enamel pan (don’t use metal - guavas are too acidic) and poach until the guavas are soft, this only takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Taste and, if it is not sweet enough, add a little more sugar. Mash and push through a sieve to remove all the pips; cool in the fridge, then stir in the cream. (At this point you can freeze the mixture for guava ice cream.) Put into a pretty glass bowl and decorate the top with two amaretto biscuits and a few pieces of glacĂ© fruit or maraschino cherries
