A Taste of the Tropics in Winter

jellyThe advantage of being friendly out in the world, aside from generally vexing your friends, family and boyfriends, is that you learn a whole lotta interesting stories and facts wherever you go.

This from a hotel’s front desk clerk: she saw a box of guavas on sale at such a price that she couldn’t possibly turn them down. But what do ya do with that many guavas? Boil ’em down, of course. Five hours later, a jelly like no other. And the color!

Thank you, Cindy. Enjoy your nor’easter.

    Hi Ann This is the recipe I used, instead of cheese cloth I used a fine strainer. It took me at least 5 hours the 1st recipe but it was really worth it. After 2 more recipes it didn’t take as long.
