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.
