Guava jam

5:55 pm Jam recipes

Guava jamDid you know that a single guava fruit contains more vitamin C than a usual citrus fruit? Cook this exotic jam for your kids and be sure they’d get much more vitamins than having eaten typical sweets.

10 to 12 ripe guavas, sliced, seeds removed
3 cups sugar
1 tsp red coloring item
water – as needed

1. Heat water in a pan and cook the guavas until tender.
2. Filter out the liquid part. Add sugar and cook over medium heat. Stir regularly. Cook until thick enough to spread on bread.
3. Add red color and mix. Let the jam cool down.
4. Pack and can, or store in an airtight container.

    Thanks for this recipe. When you say” filter out the liquid part,” do you throw away the juice then? Or we add sugar to this and cook over medium heat? Not sure if we add sugar to the solid part or to the liquid part. Just want to be clear on this. How would a jam differ from a jelly?

    Thanks much.

    Why is it that recipes like this always call for a number of guavas or a number of pounds? I juice my pineapple guavas and need a guide for cups of the thick juice, not numbers or pounds.

    You filter out the liquid part and throw out the solid part Victoria.
