Browned Butter Banana Jam

I just went through the camera card and realized I have a lot of posts to write...  Oops!  I'm going to try to get them written and posted asap.  :o)

Ok, so the first one I wanted to share (because I just ate the last of it the other day...) is a banana jam recipe I found on Neo-Homesteading's blog.  I was super duper intrigued by the idea of banana jam, and have a TON (ok, maybe just a big freezer bag) of frozen bananas in the fridge.  So, here it is!

Browned Butter Banana Jam
adapted from Neo-Homesteading

  • 1 c. (give or take) banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1/8 c. brown sugar
  • 1/8 c. sucanat (if you don't have this, just do 1/4 c. of brown sugar, total)
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 2 T. butter
  • sea salt, to taste
So, this one is pretty easy peasy lemon lime squeezy!  A note though, if you have frozen bananas, go ahead and thaw those suckers!  

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan.

Stir over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.  Make sure to stir frequently so it doesn't burn on the bottom!

The mixture will start to bubble, and the bananas should have broken down a bit.  Let it keep bubbling for a few more minutes.  This will make it nice and thick and perfectly spreadable!  :o)

The recipe above made enough to fill a baby food jar (about 4 oz).

Perfectly delicious on fresh from the oven zucchini bread!

Good both warm and cold.  Delicious in oatmeal.  Great little sugar fix by the spoonful.  :o)
