Description

Sweet and tart at the same time, this jam is a beautiful ruby red color with all the cranberries and banana chunks through it. So delicious served with warm homemade biscuits. Makes a wonderful gift, too.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Cranberries, Fresh Or Frozen
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • 3 cups Mashed Bananas
  • 7 cups Sugar
  • 6 ounces, fluid Liquid Pectin
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Preparation

Prep jars by sterilizing in boiling water. Set jars aside on a kitchen towel.

In a large saucepan, combine cranberries and water over medium heat. Simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries start to pop.

Next stir in mashed bananas and sugar. Increase heat to medium-high; boil for 1 minute. Remove from the stove and stir in pectin and lemon juice.

Pour the hot jam into sterilized jars. Wipe the rims of the jars with a damp cloth to remove any spills. Attach two-piece lids to each jar. Tighten finger tight.

Process in a boiling water for 10 minutes.

Lift the jars from the boiling water using canning utensils or rubber-coated tongs. Place the jars of jam at least one inch apart on a folded towel, and lay another kicthen towel over the jars so they cool slowly.

After 10-15 minutes, you will start to hear the lids pop (that is a good thing!). Let the jars cool completely.

Thanks so much, I just canned for the first time last summer too and LOVED it so much. There is such a satisfaction in opening your kitchen cabinets and seeing all these beautiful jars of food you canned yourself!

We lived in the country, when I was little and my mom canned everything and it was so much better than anything from a grocery store.
