banana-grapefruit jam

naomi arrived home from camp with her school, at the end of last week. she also took home all the leftover bananas...
well it was about 3 pounds, rather brown speckled bananas then anything else. what to do, as not a lot of people in the household like banana-bread. i looked through my collection of recipes and found a banana-grapefruit jam. this sounded delicious and two days later, while going to the grocery store, i added three pink grape fruits to the basket, not having looked the amount of banana compare to the grape fruit, i ended up to not have the opposite amount of bananas and grapefruit.
well, never mind, lets just twist everything around, as with jams this is absolutely possible. and so i did, half and half and adding sugar and some orange juice to it.

an hour later, i was the happy mama, putting 8 jars of freshly made banana/grapefruit jam on our pantry shelf.
at least that's what i was thinking. it wasn't that easy, it didn't get thick the way i planned it. on to the next step: back into the pan and a second cooking is going to be done tomorrow!
