Banana Marmalade!

Okay, so if you read the post a few days ago on Marvelous Marmalade, you will already know about this crazy sounding My jars of banana marmaladeconcoction. Well, I had a few bananas lying around and figured why not try it?

It is delicious! We actually spread it over the warm gingerbread cake (also from the book Marmalade: Sweet and Savory Spreads for a Sophisticated Taste) and I have found that it is simply amazing in a peanut butter sandwich…just think it is sweet and tangy like jam that goes so well with peanut butter AND you get to have bananas!

I didn’t have vanilla bean and after seeing that it costs $15.99 at the local grocery store for only two beans in the little jar, I figured that a good vanilla extract would work just as well.

I will definitely make this again. Probably real soon as it is almost gone! Next time though, I will make a much bigger batch. This recipe only makes about 1 1/2 cups or two 1/2 pint jars.

Recipe as adapted from book above:slicing the bananas

3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup of orange juice

1/8 cup of lime juice

3/4 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of vanilla extract

Combine all of the ingredients in a sauce pan.

banana mixture

Bring to a rolling boil stirring often.
