I started making this when My boys were in Jr. High. They both loved bananas and peanut butter sandwiches; I came across this recipe on line and had over ripe bananas at home and it was a hit since day one. It's always on my canning list, what I like about it is I can make it any time of year since bananas are plentiful all year long.
