I'm always looking for ideas for canning. I ran across this recipe on allrecipes. Great way to use up over ripe bananas!

2 lb
perfectly ripe bananas (no brown spots)
2 c
fresh pineapple chunks (or 2 20oz cans drained)
2 c
white sugar (1 cup less if using sweetened-flaked coconut or canned sweetened pineapple)
lemon, zest and juice
1/2 c
flaked coconut, any kind (natural or sweetened) (optional)

How to Make Monkey Banana Jam


  • 1Peel and slice bananas, and add all ingredients together in a large preserving pan. Bring to a boil, stirring often, and then reduce to a simmer for the next 15 minutes. (Cook until might take several more minutes, or it might take as few as 10 minutes.)
  • 2While the mixture is simmering, use a potato masher, or large sturdy slotted spoon, to periodically mash the fruit down, between bouts of stirring to prevent any preserves from sticking
  • 3Once desired thickness has been achieved, spoon mixture immediately into hot sterilized jars. Look for any air bubbles in the jars of Monkey Butter and if you see any, use a chopstick or plastic knife to pop them before wiping rims clean and sealing
  • 4Process for 15 minutes in a Boiling Water Bath.
