Guava is very popular,inexpensive fruit in Egypt. I always buy guava here in Montreal  from Marché Adonis, usually it is  quite expensive. I was lucky to find it this week on sale for 99 cents/Lb in MAXI. They smelled just like home when I was a little kid. I want to share my mother’s recipe with you today, hope you’ll try it and like it.
