Servings 1 medium jar
- ¾ lb. (300 gr) guava (about 3 guava)

- Salt to taste
Wash the guavas and wipe them clean. Place them in a pan and cover them with water.
Bring the fruits to a boil over medium heat and cook them until soft. Strain them to remove the water and then add a pan underneath the sieve. Using a fork mesh the fruits to get fruit all fruit pulp out.
Add the sugar and lemon juice to the pulp and bring back to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Keep boiling and stirring until it thickens and get the consistency of mashed potato. Season with salt and transfer to a jar.
Store the jar in the fridge. It will thicken even more when placed in the fridge.
