Guava Jam
Guava jam is great on toast, as a glaze on meats or as a gift

This guava jam is an exotic spread and a great way to use this tropical fruit. Guava originates from Mexico, Central America and northern South America and are naturally high in pectin, which means you do not need to add any artificial pectin to this jam. The lemon gives this jam a tangy flavour. This is a great spread on toast, on crackers with cheese, as a glaze on chicken, pork or duck, or as a gift.
