This is a recipe I adapted from a recipe from the Caribbean Islands, and, it is usually mixed into a stir fry! I toned down the heat a bit, lol’s

1/2 cup of light brown sugar
1/2 medium white tops of green onions, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red Jalapeno diced very small (remove seeds and stem)
1 small green bell pepper finely chopped
1 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 heaping tablespoon prepared honey mustard
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar (Pompeian Gourmet White Wine Vinegar) Premium quality works best!
1 teaspoon sea salt
Several grinds of fresh black pepper
1, 11.3 oz Jumex Guava Nectar
1/4 cup of Pineapple Nectar
1/4 cup of Papaya Nectar
1/4 honey

In a sauce pan, heat the Quava Nectar on medium heat. Slowly add the brown sugar and onion, garlic, jalapeno, ginger, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper; stir and cook until it is thick, dark and fragrant.  Stir every few minutes so the mixture does not scortch or burn. Allow the liquid mixture to reduce about 1/4 before turning off. Allow to cool before using.

Note: We love to serve this sauce over cabbage!  1 small head of Savoy (green cabbage)  and 1 small Purple head of cabbage, cut across the head in 3″ wide ribbons. Steam the cabbage until tender. Place 1 quartered red and 1 quartered green cabbage on plate and drizzle with the hot and spicy Guava sauce and serve immediately. This sauce works great on white meat such as pork chops, chicken breast, a flaky white fish and/or Shrimp!
