  • 3 large bananas about 20 oz.
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons water


  • Peel and slice bananas.
  • Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pot. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a medium low simmer and cook for about 15-20 minutes, until the jam starts to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  • Remove from heat and chill.
  • Pour into glass jars and store in the refrigerator.



If you’ve over cooked the jam and it chills too hard with the sugars crystalliziing, simply add a little water and stir until water is incorporated.
