Bourbon Banana Butter ~ this fruit spread is the stuff of your wildest B&B fantasies ~ silky, rich, and a little bit decadent.
Course: Breakfast, fruit spread, Jam
2lbsbananaspeeled and sliced (weigh your bananas BEFORE peeling)
1Tbspvanilla bean pasteor extract
Peel the bananas and break them up as you add them to the bowl of a food processor. Add the sugar and pulse a few times and then puree to a smooth consistency. You don't have to get out ALL the lumps. Your puree will be quite thin.
Transfer to a heavy bottomed saucepan and add the bourbon. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until the mixture thickens. Be careful not to let it scorch. Turn down the heat if necessary. This should not take more than 5 minutes or so.
Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and cinnamon. Pour into a small jar, or jars, and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Plan to eat within a couple of weeks.
