Have you ever got yourself stuck with lots of ripe bananas? Somehow this happen to me more often that I expect therefor I have to find a way to use the bananas up, otherwise they end up in a trash which I always feel bad.
So here is a very simple recipe to bust the flavor of banana.
2 ripe bananas
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Cut the banana into approximately ½ inch size.
In a small pan place all the ingredients except for the crescent and turn the stove to medium low heat.
Stir occasionally until the banana mix is slightly thick, cook for about 6 minutes.
Remove from heat. Serve warm or cold.
Now you can use the banana jam to top ice cream, spread on a toast, on pancakes…anyway you like.
You can use this simple homemade banana jam to fill crescent rolls, like in this recipe.
