fresh orange juice
white sugar, or as needed
plantain leaves for wrapping (optional)
This recipe is a great start to many other guava delights. In Mexico, they spread it out thin, sugar it, and roll it up after cooling, like a little fruit roll. You can use lime instead of orange juice for a little added zip! Super Tropical!!!
Instead of OJ, I used a cup of Lilikoi juice with a splash of lime. I ignored step 3 completely. Poured it into a mason jar, and called it jam. It's great.
