A while back we harvested an awesome amount of guavas from our tree. I posted about it here. I would have liked to show the whole process, but as time constraints dictated otherwise, I simply touched on sharing photos of the fruit. I actually spent about five hours just processing the fruit to remove the seeds. Guava has an inordinate amount of seeds! I must find some kind of gadget which will dispense with that chore in a timely fashion.
The actual canned fruit ended up being stored in the freezer. After reading on another blog that regular canning jars could be used, I decided I would try that. I was fortunate to find some Ball brand jars which are freezer safe in our grocery store.
I found that yes, the fruit does taste just as good once thawed in the fridge, and the texture did not change at all. In the meantime, I'm in the market for a good water bath canner and hopefully a seed separator of some sort. Any hints from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
