Very tasty, not bad for homemade paste.

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!

This works great. I found placing it on the board in the sun to be most helpful, likewise I limit the thickness to no more than one inch. This allowed it to dry enough that it is a perfect consistency all the way through. I did play with my ingredients a little bit as I've made several batches. One I made using fresh squeezed lime juice, approx. 1 tbsp. per cup of pulp. It worked great and gave it a nice flavor that wasn't too sweet but you don't realize it's there. I also tried doubling the guavas and cooking it longer to condense the material which was even better! All in all, this recipe is the best I've found online. It not only gives a high yield for a small amount of guavas but it tastes great! Stay away from artificial colors, flavorings or preservatives, it'll ruin your flavor and change this wonderful delicacy completely!!!
