- 1Place lime juice in a one quart measure.
- 2Peel bananas and dice directly into lime juice.
- 3Stir with a wooden spoon.
- 4Keep stirring as you dice each banana into the lime juice to prevent darkening.
- 5Measure sugar and water into a wide 2½ quart saucepan, and stir to dissolve sugar as you bring syrup to a boil.
- 6Cover tightly for the first 2 minutes (so the steam will wash sugar crystals from side of saucepan) then uncover, add bananas (with lime) and boil over low heat for about 30 minutes or until thick.
- 7Stir often to prevent sticking, especially during last 10 minutes.
- 8Jam is done when a spoon scraped across bottom of pan leaves a track that closes slowly, or when jam mounds while stirring.
- 9Fill hot, sterilized jars quickly with the hot jelly or jam mixture, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
- 10Wipe the sealing surface of the jars with a clean paper towel, dampened with hot water, to remove any jam or sugar crystals.
- 11Place lids, screw on bands finger-tight and process jars for 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
- 12Cool jars upright for 12-24 hours while vacuum seal is drawn and jam or jelly sets up. Let the jars sit undisturbed while they cool.
