This jam is so YUMMY! It reminds me of a Dairy Queen Banana Split Blizzard~
3 ¼ Cups Ripe Strawberries, crushed
1 ½ Cup Ripe Bananas, mashed (about 3 bananas)
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Box Fruit Pectin
½ tsp Butter
6 ¾ Cups Sugar
1- Step one is ALWAYS to: Wash, rinse, and sterilize jars.
2- Wash, hull, and mash 3 ¼ cups strawberries (about 2 lbs). Mash 1 ½ cups ripe bananas (about 3).
3- Combine strawberries, bananas, lemon juice and pectin in a large saucepan. Bring mixture to a rolling boil on high heat stirring constantly. Add butter.
4- Quickly stir in sugar. Return to a full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
5- Ladle hot jam into hot, sterile jars. Wipe jar rims to remove any spilled sugar and secure two-piece canning lids.
6- Place filled jars in a boiling water canner and cover with hot water. Bring water to a gentle boil and process for 10 minutes. Carefully remove jars and place on a towel until completely cooled (12-24 hours). Lids will make a ‘popping’ sound when sealed.
This yummy jam is delicious on toast but also tastes great on cheese and crackers, on pancakes, in a milk shake, and over ice cream!
