Graham Cracker Guavas And Cream

I remember distinctively the first time I ventured into the world of guavas. I must have been about 13 years old, and there sat in front of me a dessert of guavas and cream. The guavas had been poached in syrup, and the swirl of the thick sugary base and cream twirled in a hypnotic union. I dug my spoon in and found a little piece of heaven sitting on the other side. I guess it was the first time I was aware I was eating guava. I had eaten it many times before but never knew what it was called. Unbeknownst to me it had been used to make my ponche and empanadas. I decided to recreate this lovely dessert that started the initial guava craze in my life, and added a little extra something called graham cracker to it. This simple dessert can be made for a spur of the moment get together, and has every element of decadence to it! Enjoy!
