Guava Jam

We go to Honiara Central Market and another fruit and vegetable market close by
(funnily enough it is called "Fish Market").  I never get bored with looking around
at what different things I can find to experiment with.  This week my score was
these beautifully scented GUAVAS...


900g slightly under-ripe guavas
lemon juice

Wash and cut guavas and put into large pot with enough water
to barely cover. Boil until soft and then rub through a coarse
sieve. Measure the pulp and juice mixture.  For every 3/4 cup of
mixture add 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 cup of sugar. Put into a
large pot and stir continually to dissolve sugar while bringing to
the boil. Boil until mixture reaches setting stage, approximately
18-20 minutes.

Yield: 5-6 cups

Boil until soft.

Cooling sealed jars of jam.

Finished product.
