PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees. Grease eight wide-mouthed pint jars; set aside.

Cream shortening and sugar for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Now add mashed bananas and water.

Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the banana mixture. Add vanilla and mix well. Fold in the nuts if you are using them.
