The other day, as I watched my bananas take on a sad look and thought about West Indian jams, I thought it was time to make a really delicious one! I think of all the recipes I have, this is the one that smells the best in the kitchen. For this reason alone I advise everyone to try it! And especially on a piece of fresh bread, this jam will transport you to the tropics!
Recipe of the “banana jam”:
-1kg of banana flesh
-550g of brown sugar
-60g of amber rum
-1 or 2 vanilla beans
Here are my bananas that were starting to look a little sulky! But they can be even more mature! For a jam it is not serious!
Put the banana flesh in a saucepan with the brown sugar.
Since I like jam with chunks, I mash it with a fork. But you can use a hand blender at the end of the recipe if you want a very smooth jam.
Add vanillin from a whole bean by scraping the inside with your thumbnail.
And add the old amber rum.
Place over medium heat.
Cook and stir regularly with a wooden spoon.
Cook for at least 25 minutes from boiling. If you want a smooth jam, you have to mix with the hand blender, then let it cook a little more (10 minutes).
Put in a sterilized jar.
And invert the jar to perfectly sterilize with the very hot contents.
No! It wasn’t me who took a bite out of the bread… I don’t know anymore!
