This is an old recipe from a friend at my church. Its so different from most jams and jellies.

I make it when the local grocery has ripe bananas at a big discount. Can it like you would any jam and it keeps a long, long time.

How to Make Banana Jam

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine all ingredients in a large heavy pot. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Then bring to a boil and boil rapidly for 10 minutes.

    Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. Remove from heat and ladle into sterilized pint canning jars.

    Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Or usa a water bath canning procedure and seal jars. Then they will keep for at least 1 year.
