Banana Butter Part 2

Let's start with the recipe this time:

3 cups mashed bananas
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup minced maroschino cherries
6 1/2 cups sugar
1 bottle liquid pectin

Put sugar, lemon juice, cherries and bananas in a pan. Bring to rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in pectin. Mix well. Put in jars. Boiling-water-bath 10 minutes (pints).

So I made it right today with the liquid pectin and it didn't separate this time. So the moral of this story is: never use powdered pectin when making banana butter.


  1. This sounds delicious. What do you use it on?

  2. It is very good used on anything you would use jelly for.
