347/365 – Bocadillo de guayaba

So, in my morning job in the Special Collections archive of our library, I work with someone from Colombia. She was telling us about her native country and what food they eat there. She brought in some bocadillo for us. It is a guava jelly, traditionally wrapped in a leaf. It is traditionally given to children as a sweet snack, which they eat with a glass of milk. Naturally, I had to try it, and the combination is delicious.
