Cranberry Banana Jam


Post by community member:


It’s the time of year for cranberries! Buy a bunch now and put them in the freezer. Or, better yet, turn those glowing berries into jam and save your freezer space for something else.

This year I made Cranberry Banana Jam. No pectin! And it’s great on toast and pancakes and ice cream.

If you’re looking for a nice holiday homemade gift–this is it!

How to make Cranberry Banana Jam: Printable

5 cups cranberries [or a bit more, if your package is bigger]
1 1/2 cups water
3 ripe bananas, mashed
3 cups sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon

Put cranberries and water in a pan, bring to boil and when the berries start popping, turn the heat down a bit and mash them some. Add the bananas, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Don’t be surprised when this disappears fast.


Happy Holidays!

    This sounds yummy! And I just happen to have 3 over-ripe bananas in the bowl, and cranberries in the freezer. Think I’ll try it! Thanks!

    I love making jam and actually have some men in the house that will eat it, so I just maybe have to make some also.

    Is this canned water bath or pressure canner?

    Hi aprilejoi,

    If you’re pressure canning it, then use the directions for your canner. For water bath and steam canners, process 10 minutes for pints and jelly jars.

    Robin, can you freeze this jam instead of canning it?

  6. 8-31

    HI Brookdale! This should freeze just fine but the bananas might discolor. I’d freeze a bit first and see what happens. If it looks fine, then go for it.

    I have tried the corn cob jelly and rhubarb orange, now this is my next one to try. Your jam recipes are so wonderful!
