Have you ever put up peach butter? It is good as well. You can use both on ice cream, bread, pancakes,etc.
Wow, that banana butter sounds great. I don't know if I will get to try it though because my kids love bananas and they don't seem to go bad around here. Sometimes I will put a few away just to make bread!!
