Banana and Pineapple Preserve
« on: December 21, 2009, 11:57:15 am »
while i was on my banana kick i wanted to make something lighter and with less sugar that i could use to stir through yoghurt etc. and this is what i did.

600g banana (very ripe)
165g pineapple (peeled and roughly chopped)
175g sugar
juice from 2 oranges plus as much pulp as i could easily scrape out.

Chop the pineapple on speed 4 or 5 for about 3 seconds.
Add banana and mix on speed 3 for a few seconds or to suit (i like mine with a few chunks in it so mix according to use. If you wanted a smooth sauce for icecream then mix for up to 10seconds)
Add sugar and orange juice.
Cook on 100'C for 30min.

This will not gell like jam. It will be a thick rich full-flavoured fruit preserve. It is great in the TMX yoghurt, or stirred through the TMX porridge after serving.  I have also eaten it on a sandwich instead of jam so it works for that too....

I think you could also get away with less sugar if you wanted. Next time, if the pineapple and oranges are sweet (like they were this time) i might decrease it to 125g.
