Banana Jam Recipe

This is really one of my favorite holiday treats. Boil 2-1/4 cups of honey with 3 cups of water for 12 minutes. Then add the juice of 3 lemons, the rind of the lemons (cut into thin slices), 8 mashed ripe bananas, 1 piece of whole dried green ginger, and 3 or 4 cloves. Cook slowly for 45 minutes as you stir the mixture to keep it from burning. When the jam turns light yellow and becomes thick, remove the ginger, pour the jam into glasses, and add paraffin seals and lids. This recipe makes about seven 8-ounce glasses.
