Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Mash bananas thoroughly. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add lemon juice and fruit protector; stir until well blended.
  • Stir in pectin. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugars; stir until well blended. Add walnuts and spices; mix well. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    It's every bit as delicious as the recipe makes it sound. I'll be making many more batches of this to send to friends and relatives around the country for Christmas gifts, as well as to have plenty on hand for myself.

    I've made this a number of times, like others have said, it's my favorite jam/jell/conserve to make. I love that you can make it year 'round. It's delicious eaten freshly made, you can still taste the tang of the lemon and fresh bananas...but as it ages for a few weeks, it mellows out really well. It's delicious on everything I've tried it on, we've even been known to just eat it by the spoonful straight out of the jar!
