Guava Strawberry Jam

Strawberry and guava come together in one fruit-packed preserve that’s bright, fruity, and vibrant, with a perfect amount of sugar and plenty of acid to make the flavors pop.

The unique pairing of strawberry and guava makes for a truly memorable jam, whether you can it in a water bath for shelf-stable storage, or store it in the fridge or freezer for short term satisfaction (or, you know, eat it by the spoonful straight out of the pot).

Multi-fruit jams are… well, my jam.

Single fruit jams are just so… boring. If you know me, you know I love unique flavor combinations, especially when it comes to my jam recipes. Whether it is the addition of an unexpected flavor, like hibiscus or vanilla bean, basil or even chocolate, a splash of something boozy like limoncello, bourbon or gin, or a hint of heat from habanero or jalapeño.

But more than anything I love mixing fruits and flavors into unexpected fruit combinations. Like mango and raspberry, peach and passionfruit, or blackberry and apple.

But listen, this strawberry and guava jam might just be my favorite fruity combination yet.

Pink guavas have a sweet, musky fragrance with tropical notes of papaya, melon, strawberry and ripe pear… and even a little bit of bubblegum if we’re being honest. Paired with the bright berry flavor of the strawberry the combination is almost candy-like, sweet and bright with the perfect amount of acidity to balance out the sweetness.
