Help! :) We have just picked two gallons of pineapple guavas from our tall bush.Half are ripe. I would like to make jelly or preserves. The recipes say nothing about whether I can make the juice and refrigerate it until the next day to process then. Also the recipes say nothing about processing the filled jars (with lids on) in boiling water bath as other fruits are done. Any solutions? Thank you so much !!...
