Today I bring you a haiku that I wrote about making guava jelly from cherry guavas, from my friend's garden. I wrote a haiku because today I am a little bored, and I am avoiding doing paid work and housework. Would you like to meet those cherry guavas? Here they are. Hi guys!
Cherry guava jelly- A haiku
Here's how to make guava jelly. Barely cover fruit with water and simmer until soft, about 30 min. Cool, strain through a sieve (don't squeeze it! no no no! don't make it cloudy for heaven's sakes!) and measure the liquid. Add an equal volume of sugar, the juice of 1 lemon, and boil until you reach a set (to test for the set, I keep a stack of saucers in the freezer, then test a spoonful on the saucer every couple of minutes after about 10 minutes boiling. It's set when the surface wrinkles as you push your finger through it). If you are so inclined, write a small poem about it, and post it on your blog where people can freely laugh at how silly you are.
