Genip harvesting this year was short and sweet. The tree anchoring our driveway bared fruit late this year and we are going away in a week's time. If the genips aren't harvested, next year's fruit will turn out sour. Luckily we have passer-byers who are more then willing to help...themselves. But we don't mind in the least! Our tree produces an abundant amount of fruit plenty to keep and plenty to share. Genips are a good source of fiber, calcium and viatmin A. Along with minerals such as iron, phosphorus and niacin. And the genips this year are really goooooood!
Every year I make genip rum from our harvest but this year I also wanted to make a non-alcoholic version so that Milan could partake in the family tradition. I also had a lot of mamoncillos (genips en español) to use up at one time. Non-alcoholic Genip Juice was my solution, here's my recipe.
