Ingredients For monkey banana jam

  • 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)
  • 1

    flaked coconut, any kind (natural or sweetened) (optional)

How To Make monkey banana jam

  • 1
    Peel 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.)
  • 2
    While 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
  • 3
    Once 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
  • 4
    Process for 15 minutes in a Boiling Water Bath.
