This is one way to use up those mealy or past prime apples, but any apple will do. It isn’t necessary to cut the paste into cubes, but may be stored in a jar, such as a Mason Jar and scooped out. Also, it can be used in any recipe that calls for guava paste. Serve as an appetizer with cheese squares or cream cheese and crackers. May, also, be given as a gift or used in turnovers, empanadas, etc. Cook time is divided into two phases.
