Canning guava fruit sounds like a great idea.
Unfortunately, I'm in Colorado. Guava is not really common here. In fact, I've never had any!
When I was asked if it could be canned, I did some research. I found that guava is really very healthy for you. For those of you who have easy access to it, here are directions for canning guava.
This recipe is adapted from the Ball Blue Book of Canning.
