Yum

Perfect way to start the day:

Persimmon Banana Jam is an attractive way to start the day. Excellent healthy substitute for choco duo spreads.

This dish requires some patience and creativity but is absolutely worth of it. Imagine the look on the face of any kid receiving this jar as a gift. Or one sitting at the table waiting for his favorite pancakes or waffels and what s/he sees beside is two color jam made of banana and persimmon. The idea occured to me while I was walking around the supermarket and noticed so many Choco duo spreads inviting that I thought it would be good to make something healtier but still attractive. So, this should attract them enough to, at least, try the mixture . You cannot go wrong with bananas, of course. As about persimmons, it is their season and the color and the taste are absolutely perfect match to banana yellow.

All together, the quantities mentioned below are sufficient for two glass jars, each of 3 cup volume. For the best results, I suggest you measure the volume with Tbsp of water so you know how many Tbsp of each jam you need to fill the jars.
To make the process easier, prepare two pieces of cellophane. Cut them to be a bit bigger than your glass jars opening.
