Ingredients 4
Servings 1
Time 10


  • 4
    bananas, depending on size, peeled and cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1
    juice of 1 lemon
  • 1
    orange juice

1. Place the bananas and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse for a few minutes. The purée should not be entirely smooth and should still contain some coarse pieces.

2. Place the banana purée in a large saucepan and add the orange juice and sugar. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 1½ hours until the mixture is thick and reaches 120°C on a sugar thermometer.

3. Use a spoon to scoop off any foam that has formed on top and pour the jam into sterilised jars. Leave the jars aside until they have cooled and then seal them.
Makes 750ml.
