this is great! I made it using 3 c bananas, 1 20 oz can pineapple, 1/2 cup lemon juice, 4 cups of sugar and a box of sure-jell low sugar, following these directions. Then I water-bathed it for about 8 minutes (12 oz jelly jars). Oh yeah, I added a pinch of cinnamon. Heavnly, I can't wait to have waffles so we can use some. Thank you for this idea, I never, ever would have thought to use pineapple otherwise.
