3) Bring to a rolling boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
4) Remove from heat and stir in the pectin.
5) Mix well.

Have you tried this using splenda? or any other sugar subs? Maybe honey and fruit juice? Sounds really good, just don't like using that much sugar. After processed will this keep for a year like regular jellies or jams? Pretty new to canning and this is the first recipe I have come across that uses bananas. I'll have to keep my eye out for bananas on sale.

Yes it will keep just like any other canned jam/jelly

We have diabetes in the family so sugar subs are generally better for our family. I'll have to play around with it. I just keep thinking how good this would be on warm toast with some Nutella.

Made some apple butter last week. Had to make mock apple cider for it- it wasn't until it was all processed that I realized that I made mock cider with grape juice instead of apple juice. It tastes slightly different, but we really liked it. I am pretty new to making jams/jelly though. Gonna try the banana one tomorrow.

Strawberry-Pineapple Jam

4 cups prepared fruit (about 1 quart fully ripe strawberries
and 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice)
5-1/2 cups sugar
1 box Sure-Jell fruit pectin
1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine
Boil jars on rack in large pot filled with water 10 minutes. Place flat lids in saucepan with water. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to fill. Drain well before filling.
Stem and thoroughly crush strawberries, 1 layer at a time. Measure 3 cups into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Stir pineapple with juice into strawberries in saucepot.
Measure sugar into separate bowl. (Scrape excess sugar from cup with spatula to level for exact measure.) Stir fruit pectin into fruit in saucepot. Add butter. Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in all sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. *Invert jars 5 minutes, then turn upright. After jars are cool, check seals.
*Or follow water bath method recommended by USDA.
Makes about 7 cups or 7 (1-cup) jars.
