Very, very good!! I did take the advice of previous reviews and used less sugar. I used very ripe bananas (about 6), 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1/8 tsp ground clove, 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. The results are fabulous! Both my girls, ages 3 & 6, absolutely LOVE this! Will definitely be making this again! Thank you for sharing!
Very good. I'm lazy so I used a 1/2 tsp. of ground cloves so I wouldn't have to strain it. My kids had some warm with Peanut Butter and Co's Bees Knees peanut butter for lunch and flipped for it. I liked that this was easy enough that I didn't have to babysit it I just had my son help me throw everything together with the pan and he was in charge of making sure it didn't burn. Nice way to use up ripe bananas. Next time I might add a mixture of cloves cinnamon and nutmeg. EDITED: You seriously can get by with 1/4 of the sugar called for. It really just depends on how ripe your bananas are and how strong your sweet tooth is. Now that I've made this a couple times I like to add 1/2 c. chopped walnuts after the boiling step.
USE GROUND CLOVES NOT WHOLE!!!! I just wasted all the ingredients and am the proud owner of three half pints of banana spiced soup because it's impossible to get the cloves out without also getting all the banana pulp after it cooks down. I really hate to rate it so low because it has good flavor but it's basically a ruined recipe as written.
My family loves this! I used ground cloves cinnamon nutmeg and bottled lemon juice. It's wonderful on a peanut butter sandwich and my husband will even grab a spoonfull of it here and there. We plan to make a bunch of it and give away as Christmas gifts this year. My only question is how long the jam lasts before it gets to be too old. Does anyone know? This truly is one yummy recipe we'll make again!
Great way to use up really ripe bananas. I added cinnamon sticks and it came out great. Perfect for toast English muffins pancakes and of course the good old peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Might be a smart idea to put cloves and cinnamon sticks in cheesecloth or even a tea ball. Straining it was easier said than done.
good tasty. I took the advise of serveral raters and used 1/2 the sugar and 1/2 tsp of ground cloves. My yield with the changes was 5 1/2 pt jars I found on another site to water bath 1/2 pint jars for 7 mins and it will keep for one year.
Lovely - just the thing for using up a glut of bananas. I took the advice of other reviewers and only used 1.5 cups of sugar and found this was just right. I also used ground cloves (no straining) and a hint of vanilla. I simmered for only 30 minutes as the jam had thickened. I would like to know how long this jam keeps - has anyone found out? I can see me making more of this for Christmas gifts I can also see me making a cheat's banana ice cream by adding it to store bought vanilla ice cream.... Thanks for sharing!
