– Wash the guavas and pat dry.
– Place water, sugar, cinnamon stick, and lime juice in a large pot. Turn heat to medium heat. Once it starts boiling, reduces heat to simmer for about 12 minutes to allow thickening.
– While the syrup is simmering, cut the end of the guavas, and then cut them in half. Using a small spoon, carefully remove the seeds; try to avoid breaking the guavas. Don’t worry if you are not able to remove all the seeds, they will loosen up when you add them to the syrup, and you can also use a strainer to remove them.
– Once the syrup has thickened, stir in the guavas. Once the syrup starts boiling again, cook for 2 additional minutes, then cover and remove from heat and allow to slightly cool.
