Guava Duff Directions:
Peel guavas, cut in half and remove seeds. Dice the fruit and strain to remove juice. Save juice to flavor sauce if desired.
Put fruit in saucepan with water to cover; add sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Simmer until fruit is soft.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. Stir in milk and egg to form a soft dough.
Knead until smooth. Roll out like a jelly roll on a floured board. Place the guava pieces on the center of the dough and roll over until the dough is spiraled with guava.
Seal edges carefully. Wrap dough in a cotton or linen bag, or foil and parchment paper, tie the top securely and put into a large pot of boiling water for 1 hour or more if necessary to set the duff.
