Notes: This bread has never sat around long
enough for me to know how long it lasts, but if I had to guess, I'd say it
would store for 1 month in the refrigerator or 1 week at room temperature.
Even though it is "canned", I wouldn't trust it to last like properly
processed jams, jellies, pickles, etc.

an easy way to deal with ripe bananas. The fact that they taste great is
a plus. Thanks for the recipe.
turned out really well. My batch made 8 jars instead of the 7 it called
for, so you might want to have an extra jar ready, just in case. I gave
5 of them to friends, and everyone loved it. It would be really nice at
Christmas for gifts to give. You do need to label them though, it just
looks like a jar of sand or something.
