Strawberry-banana jam--Kraft/Certo recipe
I'm cleaning out my freezer of last year's strawberries, dewberries and blackberries. I also have a couple of boxes of liquid Certo that I want to use up, so I'm making jam today. While searching the Certo website (Kraft Foods), I came across this recipe for Strawberry-Banana Jam. I know bananas are on the "Don't Can" list, but I also know that sometimes exceptions are made when the product has been thoroughly tested by reliable sources. Is this one of thosse times? I have fresh homegrown bananas and thought I'd try one batch of this jam. I verified that this is listed as a canning recipe (directions are given for BWB), not a freezer jam. If it shouldn't be canned, I can refrigerate and eat, but I'm curious.
3-1/2 cups prepared fruit (about 1 quart fully ripe strawberries)
1 small fully ripe banana
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
7 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. butter or margarine (optional)
1 pouch CERTO Fruit Pectin
The recipe also calls for fresh lemon juice instead of bottled.
