Guayaba agria or sour guava is abundant in the fields of tropical countries like Colombia, and it’s typically used for preparing delicious juices. In my family we use this fruit for desserts; it combines perfectly with a sweet sauce made with vanilla, egg yolks, milk and raisins. This simple recipe is great for accompanying a cup of tea, or if you want to make the evening even more Colombian, enjoy with a good cup of coffee. MORE + LESS -
