BOCADILLO DE GUAYABA (Guava sweet treat)

400g can guava fruit pieces (1can)
3 tbps sugar
A lot of patience
Very easy, but takes time and you have to be careful: the sweet guava paste can get VERY hot and you don't  want it splashing on your hands.
Just empty  the guava can in a small pot, add the sugar and let it boil covered at mid temperature for about 10 mins. Stir every now and then until the colour starts turning darker and it starts sticking a bit to the bottom. At that stage bring down to low temperature, stirring every 3-5 mins to ensure it doesn't  burn or sticks  too much to the bottom. When it looks something  similar to the pic below, it's ready! But don't  try to taste it, remember it will be very hot!
Once it cools down, let it set in the fridge for at least 2 hours before using. Enjoy on its own, with mozarella cheese, as a filling for cakes, breads, pastries, envueltos or a topping for crackers, cheeseboard, etc.
