  this sounds different but good... firechef I found this in my i...
Marie Sharp's, a company in Belize, makes a banana jam that is out of this world. Since Belize is on the Western border of Honduras, Marie Sharp's also markets their products here.

Aside from various hot sauces, they also have the following types of jams and jellies:
  • Green habanero jelly
  • Green mango chutney
  • Red habanero jelly
  • Guava jam
  • Papaya jam
  • Banana jam
  • Mango jam
  • Pineapple jam
  • Coconut spread
  • Orange marmelade
  • Orange jelly
  • Tropical mixed fruit jam (contains papaya, pineapple, banana, mango, and orange)
So far, I've only had the banana and the papaya, but I'm sure they're all good.

The banana jam was quite surprising. The consistency was almost like apple butter and, in a way, so was the taste, but it was definitely banana and not apple. I'll have to give this recipe a try (probably in wax-sealed glasses, then frozen, since I don't have any regular canning equipment or jars).
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?
this sounds different but good...
