just made this banana jam recipe so quick and easy..thought somebody might like it. I am forever buying too many bananas.

----------
BANANA JAM
----------

1 1/2 c. sliced bananas
3/4 c. sugar
3 tbsp. orange juice
5 tsp. lemon juice
1 sm. cinnamon stick
1 whole clove

Combine all ingredients in a 2 quart saucepan. Stir over
moderate heat until sugar dissolves. Boil rapidly 5
minutes, reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly until
thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour into small jars or other
container, cool and store in refrigerator. Yields: about 1
1/2 cups. Good on toast, waffles, gingerbread or as a
filling for spice cake. I also sterilised the jar.

All I can say is, why haven't I seen this idea before?

If I ever recover from Christmas, I'll have to give this a try. I have a bunch of over ripe bananas in the fridge.

Dolphinesque, a big thanks for this recipe!! I made it last weekend and served it warm over Goodweed's Pancakes to RAVE reviews from my banana-loving family!!! So easy and SO DELICIOUS!!!

I made another batch and took it to work with some banana muffins for a late-night, quiet moment snack, and made about 20 copies of the recipe they demanded I bring in the next day!!

Big hit, this one!

Thank you!

I will have to try this. I had never thought about using bananas for jam. I love bananas on peanut butter sandwiches though, so it makes sense! I'll bet it is wonderful on pancakes or waffles!
