For the Banana-Mango Jam
4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups water
1 kilo bananas and mangoes (combined), peeled and sliced

1 kilo dalandan, peeled and skin removed
3 to 4 cups sugar

1  Prepare a syrup by cooking sugar with water until the soft ball stage.

Strain and bottle into sterilized jars. Serve with whole-wheat bread or with breakfast muffins and cheese.

4  Make the dalandan jam: Cut the ends of the dalandan. Cut each into thin rounds or segment them. Remove the pits.

What is soft-ball?
When you spoon a small amount of the boiling sugar misture into a bowl of tap water and you are able to gather the strands of sugar and form them into a ball in the water, you have reached soft ball stage. If you are using a candy thermometer, soft ball stage is at 235ºF.
