Guava paste is sweet, but not overly so. It is found in Latin food stores, but can also be found in the international aisle in many supermarkets. It comes in a rectangular brick of about 14 ounces.

Then I found a different variety and that one was sweet and delicious, but expensive. Guava paste is not expensive.
This meal takes about 30 minutes to put together, so is great for a quick weeknight meal.
This is a recipe inspired by my favorite celebrity chef, Eric Ripart. You’ve perhaps seen him on PBS, Avec Eric, or maybe as a judge on Top Chef, or perhaps you’ve eaten at his NYC eatery, Le Bernardine. What I like is that he prepares restaurant quality food, but makes it seem accessible to the home cook. So far I have been able to recreate any recipe I have tried! Don’t take that out of context.
I saw a similar recipe in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, but they wanted me to shred up some Brussels Sprouts. This I could not do. You see, I do not like Brussels Sprouts. So this recipe has sauerkraut, cabbage, apples, raisins, and dried cranberries.
