  • unblemished, ripe guavas, skinned
  • water
  • sugar
  • lemon juice


Halve the guavas and place in a saucepan. Cover with water and boil the fruit until soft. Cool slightly before processing in a food processor. Strain the mixture through a sieve. Measure the guava purée with a measuring cup and add the same quantity of sugar. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Add 15 ml lemon juice for each cup of guava pureé measured. Slowly heat the mixture, stirring continuously, until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer until the jam is no longer watery and falls off the spoon in flakes. Stir frequently to prevent the jam from sticking to the base of the pan. Spoon into clean, sterilised jars and seal.
