Detailed Method of Preparation

  1. In a large saucepan, combine mashed bananas, sugar, and water.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to low.
  4. Let the jam simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  5. Add lemon juice, vanilla extract, and cinnamon during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  6. To check the consistency, place a small amount of jam on a cold plate; it should thicken as it cools.
  7. Remove from heat, and let the jam cool slightly.
  8. Transfer the jam to sterilized jars, seal, and allow to cool at room temperature before refrigerating.
