My first experience eating Guava paste was when I took a class in college 2004 called "Spanish American Civilization" and I had to do a research paper on a country of our choice(I chose Puerto Rico) and wanted to take a snack that was indigenous to South America and this was it. My professor Jane Oyarzun's husband was there that day to do a presentation himself and was so excited to get to have some of the Guava paste as they hadn't been able to find in that part of Ohio at that time. He was of Peruvian decent and shared how when he was a young boy he ate guava paste quite often. Since then, I have served this on special occasions for family and friends and they love the unique flavor and taste of the guava fruit just as much as I do.

I look forward to trying other recipes with Guava in it; as I have seen some amazing desserts on Just a Pinch that I want to try. Hope you enjoy.
