We Be Jammin'... Banana Split in a Jar

Banana Split in a Jar 
By Heather Grinstead 

Servings: 9 half­pints 


2 cups mashed bananas 

1/2 cup lemon juice 

2 cups crushed strawberries 

1-1/2 cups crushed pineapple 

1 cup halved maraschino cherries 

1 package powdered pectin 

5 cups sugar 

1/2 cup chopped walnuts 

optional: 1/2 cup banana rum (or dark rum) 


Mix lemon juice into bananas immediately after mashing to retain the fresh color then combine all the fruit and the pectin in a big pot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar (and a dab of butter to reduce foaming). Bring to a rolling boil; boil hard one minute. Remove from heat and add nuts and rum (if using). Ladle into jars, leaving 1/4­inch headspace. BWB 15 minutes. Serve over ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate syrup!
