2 quarts strawberries
3 medium bananas (ripe but NOT soft)
3 Tbsp lemon juice
6 3/4 cups sugar

Mash bananas, and measure 1 1/2 cups into the pot.

Stir in lemon juice, and then pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Dump in sugar. Return to full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat.

Be sure to verify that commerical pectin is safe for your allergens. Pectin is usually made from fruits like apple or citrus fruits and may have corn ingredients.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
