Guava jelly Pulp - what to do with it ?

Can you make up a jam with left over pulp after making Jelly ? or does it need to go in compost . Jelly tastes great while warm. can't wait for morning toast.

donnyscans, I have not done this myself but based on a recipe using quinces that I remember reading somewhere I'm wondering if could you use the guava pulp from jellymaking to make guava paste? - the recipe I recall did just that with the quinces.

Hope that helps. :-))

I've heard of using the pulp from jelly making to make paste but have never tried it myself.

So is the paste like Jam ? do u have to add water/ sugar etc

Guava's make great wine, but pays to freeze them for a couple of weeks first, it increases the sugar level, same with cape gooseberries.

Just measure one cup pulp to one cup white sugar (or slightly less to cut the sweetness) and squeeze in the juice of a couple of lemons and cook for jam. Needs to get to 105 degrees to get a set but if you reduce the sugar your jam may be a bit softer 9I prefer it that way as I try to cut the sugar). Great on jams, and also good on a cheeseboard.
