      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.

      I have never seen a recipe for this before. Tried it and me and my co workers liked it. Shared the recipe with them. I do have a question though. Is it better to use bananas as most people eat them, meaning a nice bright yellow with no spots, or do you use overripe ones? I used overripe from my freezer that I was saving for banana bread. My butter did not have the nice yellow color as in the picture,so was just wondering the best way to do this. I used the recipe variation from reviewer"Wildheart" .

      Very easy, very yummy. Mine yielded 3 half pints with a little to spare. I always have bananas in the freezer and will be able to whip this up any time I want! Thanks for posting! Update: I ended up making more of this recipe, but only used 2 cups of sugar. I found that with the first batch, I could only enjoy very small doses due to the over-the-top sweetness. It is now perfect for my tastes and I will be making this again and again!
