Growing up in a tropical island is a blessing. We grew up eating so many organic fruits and vegetables. I still remember El Guayabo (Guava Tree) from my neighbor next door; the most beautiful guayabas that I’ve ever seen.
My Mother used to make recipes like “casquitos de guayaba” which is basically chunks of guava in light syrup (actually, the translation would be, “Guava Helmets” because of the shape of the guava after it has been peeled and halved).
El Dulce de Guayaba is also really good and it can be used as a filling for cakes or pastry dough. And talking about pastry….Que rico es un pastelillo de guayaba!
A beaten Egg.
Rico verda! What recipe do you like to make with guava?
