Cranberry Banana Jam

It's the time of year for cranberries!     Buy a bunch now and put them in the freezer.   Or, better yet, turn those glowing berries into jam and save your freezer space for something else.

This year I made Cranberry Banana Jam.   No pectin!   Great on toast and pancakes and ice cream.    If you're looking for a nice holiday homemade gift - this is it!

Cranberry Banana Jam
  • 5 cups cranberries [or a bit more, if your package is bigger]
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Put cranberries and water in a pan, bring to boil and when the berries start popping, turn the heat down a bit and mash them some.   Add the bananas, sugar and cinnamon.  Bring to a boil.  Simmer for 10 minutes.     Process for canning:  10 minutes for pints and jelly jars. 

Delicious on pancakes with a touch of the Apple Cider Syrup that I posted yesterday.  They'll disappear fast!

  1. This sounds like a very intriguing recipe! I've never bought cranberries before, but will have to get some so I can try making this. :)
