Banana Jam


4-5 medium to large ripe bananas

juice of one lime

1 1/2 cup of castor sugar

1 cup of water

1 tsp of ground cinnamon

1/4 of a vanilla bean


Chop up your bananas in small chunky pieces and place in a bowl with the lime juice.

Bring the sugar and water to a boil over a medium heat.

Once the sugar syrup is bubbling away, lower the heat, add the chopped bananas and stir everything up.

Add the cinnamon and vanilla bean.

Keep stirring to make sure things don’t get too sticky!

Keep an eye on things, (constantly stirring) for about half an hour.

The jam is ready when it coats the back of a wooden spoon and it sticks well.

Store in a sterilised jar.
