You know me, always on the look out for a bargain- well I found one on the19th- a FB post for FREE BANANAS!
So, I had Kay pick up 3 boxes and gave one to my canning partner- and from those 2 boxes I had I made,
- banana jam (using sure jel)
- banana fruit roll ups
- dried banana slices
- frozen bananas enough in each bag for my banana bread recipe
- and canned bananas pureed with lemon juice in them to add some acid for canning
I am not worried about the bit of brown color in the top of these jars because it won't make a bit of difference in the banana bread! There is enough in the quart jar for one batch of bread (3 loaves). All pureed and ready! Woo hoo! Time saver!
I confess that it was really really hard to put those dried banana slices in the bags above because they are SO delicious! But, I have a confession, there is no photo of the roll ups because I was in a hurry in the middle of the night and forgot to put spray on the trays before pouring in the banana puree- hubby is STILL trying to get them loose- ugh
hope you are lucky to get a box or 2 of free bananas too!
