Barbadian Guava Cheese is a nationwide favorite sweet delicacy in Barbados. It is also popular in other regions, perhaps mostly in Southwest India, Goa, where is is also known as “perad”. Guava cheese was brought to Goa by the Portuguese, and its popularity spread into the Caribbean Islands as well.
In the United States, it has other names, such as: Pasta de guayaba, Guayabate, or Guava Paste. With a texture much the same as fudge, Bajans eat it by itself as a dessert, or it can be used as a filling in pastries of pies. It is also wonderful as a spread over toast. There are several variations of this delicacy, but this is the basic, authentic, traditional version, and why I call it Barbadian Guava Cheese Supreme!
