Pectin Free Hawaiian Guava Jam

Guava trees are ripening right now, and it’s the perfect time to make Guava Jam!

Ingredients used to make Guava Jam

  • 20 ripe soft guavas. It is important that the guavas are ripe and soft. That gives a nice flavor and sweetness to the jam. 
  • 3 cups of Sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice 
  • Water as needed

Cut the guava into small pieces with the pulp and skin. Place in a blender to puree. Add enough water to help the mixture liquefy. 

Boil it for 10 – 15 minutes.

Strain it through a strainer to extract all the juice and pulp from cooked guavas, discard the skin and pulp left behind.

Add lemon juice and the 3 cups of sugar to extracted pulp juice mixture and mix it in.

Cook on high and bring it to a rolling boil. Stir constantly to avoid burning.

Lower to medium heat. Continue to cook and stir occasionally for about 30 minutes.
