Guava Recipes (PHOTOS)

It's time to give this tropical fruit a try.

Compared to other fruits, guava doesn't hold much rank. If you've never even tried guava before, don't worry, we're willing to bet you're not in the minority. But it's time for this to change because the guava fruit is responsible for some of the best pastries in the Caribbean, seriously. And it also makes a welcome ingredient in summer cocktails too.
