I came across this recipe when I was reading an Indian cooking book.

I haven tried it yet but it sounds yummy. It didn’t have instructions for processing it, maybe one of the experienced guys can help with that.

If any one makes it please let me know….

Banana Jam

8 ripe bananas

3 lemons medium size

3 cups granulated sugar

3 cups water

A whole piece of dried or peeled ginger about the size of a large olive.

Some cloves

Squeeze the juice from the lemons and slice the rind into paper-thin strips.

Boil the sugar and water about 10 minutes, then add the lemon juice and rind, the bananas carefully mashed, the ginger and few cloves. Cook this slowly for ½ to ¾ of an hour. Stir carefully so that it will not scorch. It will become a pale-yellow mush, and does not need to be tested for proper consistency. Take out the ginger before you put it into the jars.

Makes about 7 eight-ounce glasses.
