My love for guavas comes from my gogo in Umlazi. She had a big guava tree in her yard, which was a real joy for me growing up. That tree gave us shade from the humidity and heat of Durban, and delicious fruit that we picked ourselves, some of which my granny canned in sweet vanilla syrup. This dessert captures the scent of Durban summers for me.
