Banana/Pineapple Jam! Pectin Free!!


OOOh yesss you’ve read that right!! Banana and pineapple jam! I have been a jam maniac lately!!

I came across a recipe for Monkey Butter. It looked great..except I don’t eat coconut. So I left it out, altered the ingredients slightly. And came up with my jam 🙂


1 pineapple chopped up
6 peeled bananas (starting to get spots)
1c. sugar
4-5 TBSP fresh lemon juice


My bananas are on the really brown side. I feel this allows me to use less sugar! Making it healthier for you!!


chop up the pineapple and put into a blender or food processor, pour into pot.
peel bananas and also whip them up in the food processor. Add to pot.
Add the sugar and the lemon juice, bring to a boil on medium heat. Boil for about 30 minutes. Until mixture begins to thicken.
Ladle into jars.
Makes about 3 cups of jam.


I really think the key here is to use fresh lemon juice! DO NOT USE PECTIN. Ha! Lemon juice gives my jam such a nice consistency.

This recipe doubles very nicely!!
