this is my jam

May 16, 2011
Who knew a fancy jam could be so simple to make?  This jam is made even more perfect because it incorporates ingredients that are likely already in your kitchen.
I've decided this is the jam of 2011.

Banana-Lime Jam
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 medium overripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons butter

  1. Combine sugar and lime juice together in a saucepan.  Stir with a wooden spoon and bring to a boil.
  2. Add bananas, cinnamon and nutmeg and reduce heat to medium-low.  Cook for 45 minutes or until slightly thick.  Occasionally mash the bananas with the back of the wooden spoon.
  3. Stir in two tablespoons of butter.  Remove from heat.  The jam will thicken as it cools.

Perfect for toast, bagels or even a yummy popover.
