It's good with cheeses (Manchego, cheddar, etc.) like Spanish membrillo (quince paste.) Also delicious on toast spread with cream cheese.

Lovely, unfortunately many places use a very poor quality guava paste, which is radiant red. Manchego and Chedder are excellent pairings. Usually bakeries use a subpar cream cheese and a hydrogenated dough.

Your recommendation are great, and the comparison to quince is spot on.

I serve it with cheese and crackers, it has a firm texture that makes it amenable to slicing thin.
