Over the last few weeks I have been trying my hand at making jams. All have come out really good. Only one was a little thin, so I hade to "re-make" it as they say in the jam world.
Re-making is when you open the jars after 24 hours and re-cook with a little more pectin. It is best to do this process 1 jar at a time.

Pictured above from left to right are Passionfruit, Banana & Banana/Papaya.
I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I first tasted the banana, but he passionfruit is to die for.

I can honestly say that the Banana Jam is pure gold in a Ball canning jar. I love it! I'll eat it again and again!

Ooops - the comment I left yesterday went missing?
Here goes again:
I've tasted your banana jam - it's amazing! More so that someone thinks to make jam from bananas - this is the first I'd heard of it.

Bring on the passionfruit!

I'll trade you a passionfruit for one on my mommas's crazy bright orange peach/pineapple preserves?!
