Araza with sour carombola could be good. Araza with a small amount of lovi lovi is pretty good. We make araza jam with 10 cups of araza to 6 cups sugar.
Where are you located in CR?

Araza like guava fruit has a lot of pectin. I make araza jam by  :  1  Wash fruit  well   2. Cut in half    3 Cook with some water in pressure cooker to make them soft 4. After cooling , mash the fruit and pass through a sieve to remove the seeds.  Discard the seeds.  5. Measure volume of filtered material and add equal volume of sugar.  6. Cook under fire untill the mixture thickens with the jam consistency.  7. Fill in glass jars.
When cool store in refrigerator.  Thicker the jam, it lasts longer

In my experience you can simply cut the fruit in half, scoop out the seeds that are concentrated in the center, and cut up the pulp with the skin. Then add the fruit and sugar and cook. I used to produce araza jam commercially and we did a lot of experimenting. You don’t need as much sugar as you’d think. 6 parts of sugar to 10 parts of fruit.

for araza jam, we bring barely to a boil, if it cooks beyond that for even a very few minutes much flavor is lost
