  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the woody portions and ends.
  2. Cut into quarters and cook, covered, in enough boiling, salted water to cover for 15-20 minutes (or until tender).
  3. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Place drained sweet potatoes in a food processor, cover and process in a Food Processor until smooth. Add the bananas and process again until smooth.
  5. In a large saucepan stir together the sweet potato-banana mixture, brown sugar, honey, lemon juice, cinnamon, salt, ginger and nutmeg.
  6. Bring to boiling, then reduce heat. Cook, uncovered, over very low heat for about 30 minutes (or until very thick) stirring frequently.
  7. Place the saucepan in a sink filled with ice water to cool the mixture. Spoon mixture into storage containers. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
