Sweet Fresh Guavas in Syrup

Not sure why the guavas developed a greyish cast when I cooked them, but we devoured them all the same.

Sweet Fresh Guavas in Syrup are easy to make, and can be served with cake, cookies, or by them selves.




  1. Using a small metal spoon, scoop out the interior seeds of each guava half, discarding the seeds. Place the guava halves in a 1 qt saucepan, and cover with the water. Add the sugar and cinnamon, and squeeze in the lime juice, adding the lime rinds to the saucepan. Stir once, and then bring to boiling over a high flame. Lower the heat to simmering, and then cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove from the heat, cover, and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before serving. Serve warm, or cool completely to chill. Store in the refrigerator.
