      Great recipe! I wasn't able to find g.paste at our local grocery store so I decided to look it up here. I was a little unsure about it at first since I have never made guava paste before but it was easy and simple and turned out very tasty- I find myself snacking on it now and then.;) I used it to make my Guava Cake and still have quite a bit leftover. I used frozen guavas(letting them defrost first). Thank you for sharing this recipe!
