Use syrup from any canned fruit, or a mixture of varieties. Peel the bananas and cut into small pieces. Chop the dates and put into a pan with the bananas. Add the grated lemon rind and juice with the vinegar. Cover the pan and cook gently for 1½ hours. Remove lid and stir in raisins, sugar, fruit syrup, chopped ginger, salt and curry powder. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring well, until thick. Put into hot jars, cover and seal.
