Guava Jelly
Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/4 pounds guavas
2 cardamom seeds -- (optional)
Sugar -- as needed

Remove the blossom end from the fruits, then slice them into a large pan.
If you have cardamom seeds, crush a couple and toss them in, too. Add
water just to cover, bring to a boil and continue boiling, gently, for 10
to 15 minutes. Strain the contents of the pan through a fine strainer and
then through a jelly bag -- don't squeeze the bag, just let the juice drip
through.

Measure the juice with a cup measure. For each cup of juice you will need
just over a cup of sugar.

Put the juice back in the pan, heat it and let it boil for a few minutes,
then add the sugar and boil vigorously until setting point is reached
(about 10 to 15 minutes).

Put in jars, seal, and process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes.
