CINNAMON BANANA BUTTER






I took my kids to Hawaii to show them my old stomping grounds. It was so much fun to show them places I used to live, where I went to school and beaches I used to explore. I love everything about Hawaii: the people, the smells the food...it truly is paradise.

We went to the market one day and my son found a woman who indulged him; she offered him about 30 samples of her jam. He was in love with a banana-apple jam so we bought a jar and he was able to have a little taste of paradise on his peanut butter sandwiches for about a week after we returned home.

We don't have those sweet little apple bananas here but we thought the regular bananas tasted just as good!
