Banana and Chocolate Jam

Banana and Chocolate Jam

My jam is banana jam. With chocolate. Perfect with pancakes and crepes. You’re gonna love it, I’m sure :-D In Belgrade, one of the most beloved crepe filling is Nutella-banana-cookies and this jam is like 2/3 of it already. All you need to do is crumble some cookies on top of it. Might even try it on a slice of toast for breakfast or as a snack 8) The amount this recipe is small, just enough for you to try it out and see if you’re OK with the amounts of sugar and chocolate. And the most important thing, you can make it all year round.

Banana and Chocolate Jam

Banana and Chocolate Jam

400 g peeled bananas
150-200 g light brown sugar*
100 ml water
50 g dark chocolate**

Puree bananas either with a fork or in a blender. If you like your jam chewy use the fork. Put it in a pot with sugar and water and let boil stirring continuously. Cook for about 10 minutes and stir all the time. Remove from the heat, add chopped chocolate and return to heat. Cook until chocolate melts and jam boils, keep stirring. Remove from heat and fill a couple of small jars with the jam.

While filling the jars, put them on a wooden cutting board or something so they don’t crack when you pour hot jam inside.
Notes: *My suggestion would be to start with 150 g sugar, taste and then, if you think it’s not enough add another 50 g. **Use your favorite dark chocolate. At the moment I am in love with Callebaut Dark Block 54%, but I’ll tell you all about it in one of my next posts.

      Riina, I still don’t know. Made it for the first time. It’s been in the fridge for about 5 days now and it seems OK. It’s a very small batch, it will get eaten very fast :)

    Oh, it’s one of my favourite jams! :) I just love the banana-chocolate combination. I’m also fond of plum-chocolate one. I honestly recommend it!

      Oh, I love plum one too! My friend made this one: a few days ago. It’s plum and chocolate but it has speculaas spices added. It’s the best jam ever! Recipe is on Serbian, but Google Translate works fine :)
