Did I mention that my bread machine can make jam? It can! The Zojirushi bread machine has a jam setting. It does and we now have banana jam on a regular basis.
What’s banana jam like? It’s a refrigerator jam that can double as ice cream topping and is a nice addition to plain yogurt.
Banana Jam Recipe – Two Pound Machine
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
juice of 3 lemons
Combine the mashed bananas and the lemon juice into a measuring cup. See how much you’ve got. (It all depends on how big the bananas are, but it should be around 2 cups.) Put the banana-juice mixture into the bread pan. Then add a cup of sugar for every cup of the banana-juice mixture.
Set the bread machine on the jam setting. In about an hour and a half, your house will smell wonderful and you’ll have banana jam.
Skim off the froth, let it cool and put the jam in the refrigerator.
How long will it last in the refrigerator? We usually go through it so quickly that this isn’t an issue. However, it should last about three weeks in the fridge.
