"This sauce has a great island flavor -- not like jerk sauced foods but still slightly spicy. Use as you would your favorite barbecue sauce -- great on ribs, chicken, chops, more."

i loved this, and actually i used guava paste instead of an actual guava. The guava paste has a more concentrated flavor than the fruit, so be careful how much you add. I did it to taste, but ...

I was looking for a fruity type bbq sauce recipe that would be different from my usual sweet and tangy ones. This came close, but something about so much tomato paste and no vinegar just didn't...

Sorry, I haven't made it but am trying to figure out how to do so with Guava Paste. A guest brought me 4 packages for a pot luck (imagine that) and I'm trying to figure out how to use it.
