  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Slice guavas thinly. Place in 4-qt. saucepan; add water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 min. Thoroughly crush cooked guavas. Place three layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 3-1/2 cups juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add lemon juice and food coloring; stir.
  • Stir sugar into juice mixture in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary. Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)


  • About 7 (1-cup) jars or 112 servings, 1 Tbsp. each

    This Guava Jelly recipe duplicates the Guava Jelly my grandma made when I was little. It tastes exquisite and now that I have the recipe I will re-use it again and again as long as I have guavas falling from my tree in the back yard. It was also simple enough for a first time Jelly canner to do with an assistant the first time but alone the second time around. Thank you Kraft and Certo for the great taste memories and the ability to be successful on something so unique and so fullfilling.
