Marketman of the always excellent Market Manila recently made guava jam and guava jelly from scratch, and maybe you should too, if you can find fresh guavas near you. Both the jam and jelly go well with cheese, with something as simple as cheddar on a cracker, or as upscale as camembert on croute.
If you've never had a guava, they taste somewhere between a pear and a strawberry, which is to say pretty good! Filipino, Mexican and South American groceries might have guavas in fruit form, jams and jellies. If you're really lucky they'll have them baked into pastries; alternately, get Gristedes to sell you a box of Entenmann's Guava Pastries Puffs for $4.69.
