Geléia de banana (Banana Jam)

Banana jam is a home made recipe really easy to make but really delicious. It can also be served as a dessert course, together with a slice of fresh cheese or a tablespoon of cream cheese.


  • • 6 ripe bananas (approximately 850 g)
  • • 3 tablespoons water
  • • sugar (calculate about 75% of the banana puree total weight)
  • • 1 or 2 limes, to taste

Preparation method

1. Peel the bananas and cut them into small pieces. 
2. Put the bananas into a thick-bottomed pan, add 3 tablespoons of water and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the bananas break-up. It takes about 10 minutes. 
3. Use an immersion blender to puree the cooked bananas.
4. Weigh the banana puree. Add sugar calculating a weight that is equivalent to 75% of the net puree weight (500 g puree => 375 g sugar). If the bananas are not very sweet add a little more sugar. 
5. Mix together puree, sugar and lemon juice and cook over medium-high heat stirring constantly, for about 15 minutes, until the mixture thickens enough to show the pan bottom during stirring. 
6. Pour into a ceramic or glass food container and store in the refrigerator.
