Black sugar banana jam with sesame seeds

Haven’t tried black sugar yet – then make this jam with banana and black sugar. Black sugar is quite common in Asian and African cooking but not that known here in Europe. Black sugar is much healthier and richer in taste than white and brown sugar. It is darker and blacker than brown sugar and filled with flavor and contains molasses, potassium, iron, calcium and other minerals.

Banana jam with black sugar
25 grams of sesame seeds
300 grams of bananas
100 grams of black sugar
Lime juice of 1 lime

Toast the sesame seeds in a pan till they turn light brown. Pour them into a bowl and set aside. Peel the bananas and mash them in a bowl. Add them to a pan with the black sugar and lime juice. Bring it to a boil– and stir in the pan. Let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes till it has the jam thickness you like. When done add the roasted sesame seed and pour the jam into sterilized jars. Allow the jam to cool off – store it in the refrigerator.
