Sint-Maarten

Guaveberry

more than a year ago
A small, slender, nearly unnoticeable tree is responsible for one of St. Maarten's many miracles and its dark orange and reddish berries have been stewed in homemade jams and pies over a century. Desserts are, of course, quite tasty, but you can also steep the berries in rum with spices that results in a distinctive, bittersweet liqueur. It's traditionally consumed at Christmas, but we think this legendary alcoholic beverage is good at any party or celebration. Locals have even composed folk songs about the cherished island drink that have become an integral part of St. Maarten culture.
