Spiced Banana Sauce
Found on Pinterest
10 ripe bananas, peeled and diced
7 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. fruit fresh (optional)
3 C. granulated sugar
2 C. dark brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. butter
2 Tbsp. powdered pectin
2 tsp. rum extract
Step 1: Dice the bananas and place in a large pot. If you are canning this, get your canner, jars, and lids ready. Sprinkled the lemon juice over the bananas and stir. I did not use fruit fresh for this recipe, not because I didn't want to, but because I thought I was out. As it turns out, I had a whole new jar tucked away in my pantry. Oh well! If you are using fruit fresh, sprinkle it in with the bananas and lemon juice, and stir to coat the bananas.
Step 2: Add the sugars, cinnamon, and butter. Heat on medium sugar is dissolved.
Step 3: Bring the mixture to a boil. Once at a boil, add the pectin. Return the mixture to a boil and boil hard for 2 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the rum extract. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes before ladling into hot jars.
Step 4: Fill the jars to 1/4″ headspace. Put on the lids and screw bands and place in a water bath canner. Process for 10 minutes.
