with overripe bananas, sugar, ground cinnamon and fresh lime. This easy banana jam recipe is great on morning toasts and more!
– 1 1/2 lbs. (700 g) peeled overripe bananas – 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar – 2 tablespoons brown sugar – 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice – 2 tablespoons water – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 3 dashes ground cinnamon – 1 tablespoon rum, optional
Mash the bananas with the back of a fork or using a smasher. The bananas should have tiny chunks.
Transfer the mashed bananas to a pot. Simmer over low heat. Add the sugar, brown sugar, lime juice, water and salt. Stir to combine well.
Continue to simmer—stirring occasionally—for about 10-15 minutes, until the banana jam becomes slightly thickened. Stir in the ground cinnamon and rum, if using.
Remove from heat, let cool completely before transferring the jam to an air-tight container.
You may keep the banana jam in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
