Guava Jam

In my household, bread , butter and jam are a must at breakfast, otherwise we feel like we haven't had any breakfast. With guavas in season, guava jam is very much in order. The best part with homemade jams is the control over sweetness. If you find store bought jams too sweet for your taste, give this a try.

With my time distributed towards the university, students and lectures, I wish I could find time enough to always make homemade jams. This jam is the right amount of sweet, oozing with guava goodness and is very easy to make.



500 gm guavas, seeded and sliced thinly
2 1/2 cup water
1 1/3 - 1 1/2 cup sugar
Juice of 1 - 2 lemons

Put guavas and water in a steel saucepan. Boil in low heat until guavas are soft. Break guavas with a wooden spoon or you can use the potato masher to do the same. Put sugar and lemon in the jam. Cook until the jam thickens. Keep stirring constantly. Store in sterilized jars.

Happy cooking!!!
