Expert Tips

You can substitute the lemon juice for orange juice and if you cannot get guavas, use quinces to replace them.

The guava is a sweet and aromatic tropical fruit that can be used to make desserts, sweets, juices, and concentrates for dips in some Caribbean recipes. However, I enjoy it most as a syrup or paste.

Directions
