Banana Jam, Have You Ever Made Banana Jam

I've been making banana bread for quite a few years now but I had never made banana jam until a few weeks ago. And to tell you the truth I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful this banana jam does taste.

I like to take the first recipe below for banana jam and make it. Then I take two big tablespoons of that jam and mix it with two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter and then I spread that onto slices of toasted banana bread from the recipe just below. And let me tell you that you have not lived until you've tried it. The flavor combination when you taste it is just simply wonderful. And you won't know how wonderful the combination of flavors are until you make the banana bread and a run of the banana jam and give it a try yourself.

Wonderful Tasting Banana Bread

This recipe for banana bread is delicious and rather easy to make. I would suggest you buy a couple of new loaf pans and a roll of the new baking paper with tin foil on one side and parchment paper on the other side. Cut your baking paper to fit the bottom of the loaf pan and after you put the baking paper in the loaf pan with the parchment side up spray your loaf pan very well with vegetable cooking spray before you pour your banana bread ingredients into loaf pan.

For Your Banana Nut Bread You Will Need.

1. One Cup Fine Chopped Pecans.

2. Two Cups White Granulated Sugar.

3. Four Large Eggs.

4. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

5. Two Teaspoons Baking Soda.

6. Four Cups All Purpose Plain Flour.

7. Six Large Very Ripe Bananas.

Start off by mixing your butter and sugar together very well in a large bowl. Now beat your eggs in one at a time.

I always use a hand electric mixer to make sure I get everything mixed up well. Now you want to shake your pecan pieces in a tablespoon of your flour in a large plastic bag so they get coated with flour. If you do your pecan pieces like this they will stay in the batter and not sink to the bottom.

Now mix in all the rest of your mixed banana bread ingredients into the bowl and use the hand mixer to be sure you scrape the bottom of the bowl and get everything well mixed in. Now you'll need two prepared loaf pans and divide the banana bread batter between the two pans. Shake each pan to make sure your banana bread ingredients are settled and leveled well.

You'll want your oven heated to 350 degrees and you'll want to cook your two loaf pans of banana bread for 90 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of each loaf pan comes out clean. Let your cakes of banana nut bread set in the pans for 10 minutes and then turn them out onto the counter and set them on a tray or plate to cool. This is some of the best banana nut bread you'll ever taste and enjoy. Remember to dust your pecans with flour so they don't sink to the bottom of the pans while the bread is baking.

Lets Make Banana Jam

Here were going to be making a very easy banana jam recipe that will be delicious no matter how you use it but I promise you it's delicious on the banana nut bread above. I promise you that if you love banana nut bread and bananas you'll love this delicious banana jam on homemade banana nut bread. Don't be worried about making jam. If you'll just follow the instructions it will turn out perfect each and every time. And it is delicious.

For Your Banana Jam You Will Need.

1. Four Cups Very Ripe Bananas Ripe.

2. Six Cups White Granulated Sugar.

3. Three Ounces Pectin.

4. Three Fourths Cup Unsalted Butter.

5. Seven Tablespoons Lemon Juice.

First of all you'll want to combine your bananas crushed up and three cups of your sugar in a pan and let it stand for one hour. You want your bananas to be very well crushed up.

After one hour add the remaining sugar to the pan and put it on a burner on your stove. Gradually heat up the ingredients of the pan and stir often to be sure that your sugar all gets dissolved.

After the sugar has dissolved let the pan come up to a boil and let it boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and carefully skim off the foam that comes up on top. Repeat this process again and once again skim off the foam.

Now add your butter, lemon juice, and pectin and bring to a boil. Stir constantly for one minute and take off the heat. Take off the heat and if there is any foam skim it off.

Allow your jam to cool for seven minutes before you add it to hot pint jars. Seal your jars with hot boiled lids and rings and seal them tightly. Put your filled jars of banana jam in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes and then allow them to cool before you apply labels and store.

Orange Banana Jam Recipe

Another Great Banana Jam Recipe

Here were going to be making an Orange Banana Jam that I guarantee you will be oh so delicious. You really need to buy a large navel orange to make this jam with. I use all the juice out of the largest navel orange that I can find and I squeeze the orange juice through a strainer to be sure I don't get any seeds in my jam.

For Your Orange Banana Jam You Will Need.

1. Juice Freshly Squeezed From One Large Navel Orange.

2. Three And One Half Cups Peeled And Mashed Very Ripe Bananas.

3. Two And One Fourth Cups White Granulated Sugar.

4. One Half Cup Water.

5. One Tablespoon Lime Juice.

Mix your mashed bananas, orange juice, and lime juice in a large pot and stir very well to make sure all the ingredients are very well mixed.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan after an hour and stir everything up together well.

Cook at boiling for thirty minutes stirring often and be sure to stir down from the sides of the pan.

Let the jam set and cool for 10 minutes before you fill hot boiled jars with your jam. You'll get about four half pints of delicious orange banana jam with this recipe. Put your sealed jars of orange banana jam in a hot boiling water bath before you set your jars out and allow them to cool before you label and store your jars.

This is one of the easiest banana jams you can ever make and the fresh squeezed orange juice gives your jam a truly unique flavor you won't soon forget. It really is one of the most delicious banana jams you will ever taste and if you follow the recipe it will turn out perfect for you each and every time.

Banana Split Freezer Jam

For Your Banana Split Freezer Jam You Will Need.

1. 2 Cups Hulled And Crushed Strawberries Which Will Be About One Quart.

2. 1/2 Cup Very Well Mashed Ripe Bananas.

3. 4 Cups White Granulated Sugar.

4. 2 Teaspoons Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice.

5. 2 Tablespoons Chocolate Syrup.

6. 3/4 Cup Water.

7. One Regular Size Box Sure Jell Fruit Pectin.

Mix 2 cups crushed strawberries and 1/2 cup crushed bananas in a bowl and then stir in the sugar and lemon juice and allow it to stand for 10 minutes stirring every one in a while.Now add in the chocolate syrup and stir well.

In a saucepan mix the pectin and water and bring it to a boil. Continue to let it boil and stir constantly. Add the pectin and water to the banana mixture and stir it up together well.

Wash plastic freezer containers well and then fill with your jam. Put the lids on and let it set at room temperature for 24 hours before you freeze or refrigerate your jam. It will keep in the refrigerator for a month or in the freezer for up to a year. Let frozen jam thaw 24 hours in refrigerator before you use.

This makes one of the most delicious jams you'll ever eat. I think it's one of the best jams in the world. And I bet you will to once you make it and taste it.
