Florida jam is an exotic confection perfect for Florida made with mango, bananas, coconut and a dash of white rum. Easy to prepare!

Why Florida Jam? Because it’s so easy to make and when all that fruit comes in, it’s a good idea to have a selection of recipes to deal with it all.

Florida Jam will take you about 30 – 40 minutes to prepare.

Florida Jam – about 10 – 14 small jars

  • 5 – 6 cups ripe Mango, peeled, diced and blended to a smooth pulp
  • 4 cups bananas – not too ripe, peeled and sliced into thin discs
  • 1/2 cup grated coconut (optional)
  • 6 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 and a half sachets of pectin
  • 2 or 3 glasses of white Rum
  • 1/2 cup of lemon juice

  1. Put the fruit, coconut and lemon juice in a tall pot.
    Mix the pectin well with the sugar, add it to the fruit and bring it to a boil.
  2. Boil for 3 minutes on high heat, stirring constantly.
    Remove the pot from the heat, add the rum to taste and mix for 1 minute, dissolving the foam.
  3. Evaluate the consistency of the jam as you go and when it has reached a thickness you like, then pour it into hot sterilized jars (the rule : hot sauce into hot jars)
    Close tightly and invert for 5 minutes.
