Very very good, very very easy.. intense in flavor!!!! Great Xmas gifts,thanks!
Re made again the other day. I added in about 4 Tbsp banana liquor, even better!
I made two batches of this to give away as christmas gifts. It set up beautifully and really does taste like banana bread batter! The pectin measurement specified is very misleading - the boxes of powdered pectin are only 1.75 ounces per box while liquid pectin comes in 3 ounce packets (usually sold in a box containing 2 3 ounce packets.) When I first read through the recipe and saw box of pectin I assumed powdered but on second read through I noticed the 3 ounces and used 1 pouch of liquid pectin. I got three pints out of this recipe plus a little container of extra that I stuck in the fridge. I made a bunch of different flavors of jam for christmas gifts and with all of the "extras" I had in the fridge I made thumbprint cookies that I took to work so people could sample the flavors and pick what kind of jam they wanted. Everyone raved about this banana jam and it was the first flavor to go!!
I made a banana cake and used this for in between the layers it is yummy!
