    How long will the jam keep on the shelf? Do i have to refrigerate it?

  2. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Yes its better to refrigerate them as we havent added any preservatives in it.. 🙂

  3. Tata says:

    It seems to be yummy….do you have any recipe for making papaya jam Marina?

  4. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Hi Tata,

    I havent made it as I am not too fond of Papaya. I will have to check by dairies to see if there is any recipe. Will send it to you wen I come across it..

    Hi..Which banana variety suits this best?

  8. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Any type of banana will do Anu.

  9. ameena says:

    Oru doubt… Doesnt Lime juice serve as a preservative or does it just brings out the flavor of it? Is it okay if I use reconstituted lime juice? Or can i make without it… 🙂

  10. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Lime juice is added to avoid discolouration as well as an extra zing to it. I guess reconstituted juice should work fine. As for not using at all, I guess that’s a chance you have to take as I have never tried. 🙂

    Hi Mareena, I have never tasted or heard of a banana jam till date.Would love to try out your recipe for a smaller portion. Is it okay to skip the artificial food colour (or maybe put very little grated beet for a slight colour during the cooking stage)? Also is it okay to substitute sugar with jaggery? Look forward to your reply. Thank you! 🙂

  12. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Hi Kalyani.

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Hadn’t seen this message. Skipping artificial colour is perfectly fine. Yes you can use Jaggery as well.. Make it in a liquid from and strain before adding it..
