Yeah! the comments are back in motion...thanks Blogger!
Remember when I showed you the photo of the strawberry-guava?
Well, since then, my Aunty has picked several bags from the 2 trees near her house. My aunty cleaned most of them and then froze them, then passed along these frozen guava to my mom--the jelly maker in our family.
Yesterday, mom put the frozen guava into a pot to simmer for about 30 minutes to get out all the juice.
After the 30 minutes were up and everything was bubbling and smelling good, she put everything to strain on a sieve. (You are supposed to hang it in some cheesecloth to let the juices drip out, but she said she did it the "lazy way").
She got this much juice from one batch and repeated the process several times to fill up 1 and 1/4 gallons.
The next process will take place later (hopefully while I'm still here in Hawaii) so after the juice cooled, she put these containers into the freezer.
