Rum Island Butter with Pineapple, Mango & Banana






One of the many things I'm going to miss when we sell our home in NY is my pantry. It's huge and I made sure I kept it well stocked. When something was on sale I was like a moth to a flame. I never got one or two items it was more like six or more. Plenty of room to store it so why not and in the long run it saved us money.

In the pantry I still have a few cans of pineapple and really didn't think of using them until I found this recipe on Morsels & Moonshine.

I've been on a mango kick lately and always have bananas in the house but when I saw coconut rum- no way was that going in the recipe.

Coconut does not touch these lips and subbed 1 tablespoon of vanilla for 1 tablespoon of rum extract.  The coconut rum I subbed pineapple juice.

My mango was super  ripe and my banana wasn't large, I think that's why I got more of an orange color to the jam but who cares? It taste delicious.

The first thing I added it to was the mousse recipe. OH MY! Can you say make again?

Ingredients:

1 banana (no brown spots)- peeled and sliced
1 can pineapple chunks (20 oz), liquid removed
1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
1 c. organic cane sugar*
2-3 T. lemon juice
1 T. Rum Extract **
pinch of cinnamon
1/4 c. pineapple juice ***

Directions:

Drain the pineapple and save the liquid for later use.

Add the sliced banana, chopped mango's and the pineapple to a large deep skillet. Sprinkle sugar over the mixture and add in the lemon juice and mix until well combined.

Over medium heat bring the mixture to a boil. When it starts to boil reduce the heat to bring the mixture down. You want the fruit to be soft and for the liquid to evaporate.

At this point add the rum extract, cinnamon and pineapple juice.

Stir consistency with a wooden spoon. Should take about 20- 30 minutes.

Once cooked let cool in the skillet.

Place the cooled mixture in a food processor or blender and mix until smooth.

The mixture should have the consistency of applesauce.

Refrigerate once cooled.  

Recipe made about 1 1/2 cups.

* Someone gave me bag of organic cane sugar and found that in the pantry.

**  Rum Extract was my sub. The original recipe use 1 tablespoon vanilla 

*** Didn't use 1/4 cup coconut rum that was in the original recipe subbed pineapple juice .

  1. That looks SO good, Linda....talk about making your toast taste extra special...MMMMMMmmm. Bet it was great in your mousse too.

    Ohhhhh do I envy you having a pantry. That's something I would LOVE off my kitchen. I'd be like you and keep it very well stocked all the time. That's how my cabinets are....TOO well stocked I'm afraid. Yeah you're gonna really miss that in your small kitchen in FL. Don't you wonder why houses have such small kitchens now? I guess people don't spend much time in them any more......I sure do in mine and I know you do too......

    HAHAHAHA-that pesky coconut....you took care of that right quick! :)

  2. Oh Linda, looking at your recipes, it makes me so mad at myself that I am so very fussy about what I eat. I love Pineapples, but am not a fan of bananas or mangoes. I really should talk myself into doing things differently, but at this stage of my life, I have had way too many changes, and anymore would break me for sure. This looks so pretty, and I bet it was so good in your mousse. I did make that mousse by the way, and it was great. Of course I had to add chocolate, since this is my #1 downfall. I am going to pass this one along, since there are many many people who love the ingredients in this. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Myra,

      Words can not express how grateful I am that you take time every day and have been supportive on the blog for almost four years.

      There are many things that people wouldn't make and I completely understand that.

      Thanks for the share.

  4. Yuuuuumy. I wouldn't add the coconut rum either. just doesn't sound appealing to me. I do like coconut and even more so when toasted since it tastes like candy. I like the changes you made to the recipe. Have it copied to try!
