    Chef #1138729's Note:

    Your overripe bananas don't need to go to waste anymore. Everyone will go "bananas" for this sweet, delectable jam/sauce on everything from waffles to ice cream, crepes to cake filling. I've never done the full canning routine with this, since it's sealed in the jars while hot, but I suppose you could. Recipe from the Joy of Desserts website, adapted slightly for personal taste.

      Pretty good. Made this today, but I messed up and boiled it for about 20 minutes. I added ingredients as stated, though I only ended up with 5 1/2 pint jars..oops. Anyhoo, I canned them anyway. It's good jam, though very very sweet! I would try it again.

      Having never tried Banana Jam and new to making jam and after reading the other reviews, I modified this a little bit; I used white sugar, lemon juice, agave rum and no or low sugar pectin. I followed the directions for the most part, except after thickening the sauce I added the pectin and banana's brought to a boil that could not be stirred down for about a minute. Then put into jars and processed. The pectin made it more jam like, one review said it was more of a sauce. Overall excellent taste, I think next time, I'll just leave the rum out, the smell gave the wife a headache.

      Delicious! This would make a wonderful dessert sauce if not boiled to jam stage. I didnt have lime so used lemon juice & used white sugar in place of light brown (because we only get one sort of brown sugar in NZ). Am just making my second batch ( I bought a whole box of salad bananas!) & have halved the amount of cinnamon plus added a tablespoon of butter. Also sliced my bananas this time rather than pre-mashing so I get a few fruity chunks.
