Here's a recipe for Guava Jelly:
4 cups guava juice
Place juice and pectin in a large stainless steal pot and bring to a quick boil. Add sugar and bring back to a boil and boil hard for 1 minute,, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, skim, ladle into hot, clean jars and seal. Process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Guava juice-wash 2 quarts of guavas, remove blossom end and cut into slices. Add water to cover, bring to a boil, and boil gently for 15 minutes. Strain through a jelly bag. Reheat juice to boiling and pour into clean hot jars. Seal.
Oddly, there were loads of white families in 1870 with surname Hercules in states like IL, IN, MA, MO, OH, but not 1 slaveowner in USA in 1860 with that surname.
