Well by now, it is clear I have fallen in love with canning and when I happened upon this recipe I just had to try it out. It sounded delish and easy enough to make that I couldn't go wrong. Not only will this be wonderful as a spread on toast but I think it would be wonderful as a filling for a yummy cake or on top of some waffles or pancakes. Yumm

Ingredients

5 medium
size perfectly ripe bananas (no brown spots)
20 oz
whole can of crushed pineapple, do not drain
1/2 c
coconut, shredded or flaked or ground
3 1/2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
lemon juice concentrate
1 box
pectin (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add all your ingredients except bananas into a heavy saucepan then lastly slice up your bananas and turn on the heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often.
2
I used a potato masher to get the bananas to the consistency I wanted. Once you have it to a boil reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until it thickens to your desired texture. Make sure you are stirring often. Now, this didn't take long for mine maybe 10 - 12 minutes or so cooking including the boiling point.
3
Once ready spoon mixture into sterilized hot jars and seal with lids. Then process with a 15 minute hot water bath.

This sounds great and will be trying it. However I wonder if recipe can be made substituting the sugar for truvia or truvia blend?

I'm just curious.....I've read a few of the controversial statements. For those who think it is unsafe....what about doing the water bath and then freezing the jars for storage? Would it be safe that way? Kim, I totally trust you and your recipe; I was just curious if that would end the questioning of the people that think it is unsafe. I have not gotten around to making this yet; but every time I see it, I kick myself for not remembering to try it!

The issue isn't PH. It is density.
