Kids in the Kitchen Link Up #29 - Guava Jelly

I'm joining with my good friend Carrie @Young Living Oil Lady to bring you this Link up where we can share family friendly recipes and encourage families to spend time together cooking and eating together in the kitchen! We look for ways to teach our kiddos about health and nutrition, teach them about the tools and safety in the kitchen and planning meals for the family.

This week - Homemade Guava Jelly: 

You'll need a gelatin such as Sure Jell or Ball Fruit Pectin - we took the pic below and then figured out we had the wrong stuff! There is also a No sugar added variety of Jells and Pectin too - but for guava jelly - sugar is a pretty important part of the recipe - I recommend organic cane sugar!

Wash and peel your Guava fruit - slice it and put in a big pot. Cover with just enough water to float it.

Bring to a boil, stir with wisk and break it up - pour and strain through a strainer and put it back in the pot to cook. You want to make sure to strain the guava several times and make sure to get the seeds out.

Follow the directions on the sure jell pack - we went with the strawberry recipe - and add sugar accordingly. I highly recommend using organic cane sugar.

Isn't Guava cool?
