guava compote



This is a tasty little snack recipe my mom taught me.  If you ever see guava at the market and wonder what you can make with them, buy about a pound and make yourself some guava compote.  It goes really well with some greek yoghurt and honey.

Ingredients:
1lb guava, washed and cut in half
1/4 cup sugar (you can reduce or increase the amount of sugar depending on how sweet you like it, I like it not too too sweet)
1 cup water

Directions:
Place all of the ingredients in a pot on medium heat.  Cover, stirring occasionally,  and let it cook for about 30 minutes until the guava are completely soft when fork-tested.  Let cool before serving.

Enjoy!
