“Guinep juice is not only refreshing and tasty but also very healthy. The fruit is full of fibre for lowering cholesterol and preventing constipation; Vitamin A, which boosts your immune system and prevents formation of urinary stones and Vitamin C, which is a great antioxidant.” – Chef Noel Cunningham, Cuisine by Noel
- 1- inch piece of ginger blended and strained
- 1 litre water
- 1 lime juiced
Remove the guinep skin and place the fruit into a medium bowl; set aside. In a medium pot bring water to a boil then pour over guinep and leave for 20 minutes or until cool.
Make sure your hands are very clean and use them to rub the pulp from the seeds. Massage all the fruit to get the flesh released into the water to let loose the guinep's juices.
Strain the mixture and add the lime juice. Sweeten to your taste.
The more guinep you use the stronger the guinep flavour.
