default banana recipes

Post by Lakshmi on 28th June 2011, 6:42 pm

I found A LOT of bananas at the greengrocer's for 99p.

If you were the lucky recipient of lots of ripe to verrrry ripe bananas, what would you do with them?

One rule: No freezing.

go on... tell me!

I'd use one or two in homemade banana yogurt - I whizz up bananas in a liquidiser with a small carton of natural yogurt, a sqeeze of lemon and some brown sugar. It really needs to be put in the fridge for an hour or more for the taste to develop properly. This amount feeds two people.
I might also make some banana and walnut loaves which could go in the freezer (is that allowed??)
A childhood pudding was simple mashed banana - mashed up with soft brown sugar and a bit of very cold milk. It's incredibly soothing - the sort of thing you might be able to manage if you couldn't face anything else, like when you have a migraine.
Oh - banana fritters; slices dropped into thick batter then fried in butter. Also banana sandwiches, with maybe some dates, or cottage cheese.

I remember talking to a guy from Uganda (?) once at a party, who was complaining about the limited range of bananas in the UK. Apparently as well as bananas for eating fresh, there are bananas for culinary use, and ... bananas for beer making. Now there's an alarming thought !

Dried bananas -either as sticky 'logs' or as crunchy chips. We do the latter a lot. They keep for ages .

Ah yes, banana skins. Very useful. No. I'm not talking about student attempts to gain a narcotic effect by drying and smoking them. I mean they are great for tomato growers - high in potassium, and as they decay they release ethene which speeds the ripening process.

wow! a wealth of lovely ideas! thank you so much everyone!

I had even forgotten my beloved drier... thing with the bananananas I find I need to get them to dry for 10 hours in one go. it just doesn't work if I let them dry for a few hours and restart it at a later point. will see...
