A special recipe for those who live in the United States.
Course: Cold Beverages & Aguas Frescas
2piloncillosconed-shaped, mexican rock sugar - you can substitute with 2 cups of brown sugar
7applescored and chopped
1cupraisinssometimes I use different types
10tamarind podspeeled and seeded
20tejocotes in syrupcut in half and seeded
1800 gr / 1 lb 12 oz can of guavas in syrup (also know as guyabas mexicanas)
Pour water into a very large pot and place on stove over high heat. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 30-40 minutes until the apples are cooked. Stir occasionally.
You can serve it immediately, however, I like to let it rest for a few hours to let the flavors combine, or even make it a day ahead of time. You can reheat it if you like, but it is also as tasty cool as it is hot.
