Guavas have a very special place in my heart. The intoxicating aroma of guava juice boiling with sugar in a large pot on the stove meant grandmother (Geneva) was making guava jelly. It was a delicacy that all our relatives would fight over. Using a wooden spoon, she would test the boiling liquid by lifting a spoonful up and turning it to drip. When the third drop of tacky liquid hung to the spoon and refused to drop, she's turn off the fire quickly and cool the liquid treasure down to be stored into ball jars. Home-made guava jelly is pure bliss...

Also, we had a guava orchard nearby and as kids would take the very ripe, soft, squishy, sweet, sticky fruit and throw them at each other like snowballs. To be hit in the upper body or head with a soft, ripe guava was like getting hit with a tomato -- yucky messy goo.

Guanabana, on the other hard, to me is a very subtle, tropical, thick component in some of the nest milkshakes I've ever had. The Cubans add too much sugar to their batidos, but it's a wonderful flavor.

"Every April, I could always tell it was Passover, as I couldnt get enough of the whiff of gefilte fish..."

Oh gefilte fish (pisces efercius, taxonomically)....Perhaps one of the finest dishes known to man. Considering I only know two people who can produce an edible product, apparently one of the hardest to cook as well.

gava paste is ubiquitous here in the US, every grocery store has it in the latin food aisle. Perhaps a specialty retailer may have it where you live? it comes in a round flat tin.

How does the Guava paste tastes like compared to fresh Guava puree?
