Guayeco, the makers behind this marmalade, is all about guava. All their products are made in the small town of Calvillo, Mexico, in the center of the country. The area boasts the best guavas, so they say, and it's here that the story of the marmalade began.
I have a soft spot for marmalades of this nature: a bit chunky with peel yet spreadable, luscious, bright and delicious. It sports only two ingredients: guava and cane sugar (well, three because there's a touch of citric acid in there to help keep its color).
Guava is one of those exotic flavors that feels very familiar. Its flavor is tropical and sometimes it actually makes me feel like I'm basking on a beach somewhere instead of nibbling away at my kitchen table. Try it on toast, grilled chicken or even pork tenderloin hot off the grill.
"Love, love, love the guava marmalade. Not too tart or too sweet. Great on toast or yogurt."
