DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse berries with a small amount of water. Clean by popping berries and removing seeds. Rinse seeds, strain and save liquid. Put seedless berries into a large pot, but reserve ½-cup yellow and ½-cup red berries for later use. Add liquid saved from rinsing seeds into the pot and add brown sugar.
  • Boil mixture until berries are soft. The juice should be a medium syrup consistency or sticky when cool. Mash or grind berries that were saved and mix with strongest old rum available. To the cooled mixture, add prunes, raisins, vanilla beans, sorrel, ginger root and cinnamon bark. Pour into bottles, cork and wire down securely. Store in a dark place or cellar for several months. When guavaberry liqueur is fully ripened (the taste will tell), strain and re-bottle for use.
  • Note:
  • Be careful - guavaberries can leave a permanent stain.
