There’s no other fruit that epitomises Caribbean cooking as bananas do, in their raw or cooked state they tend to be everyone’s favourite. They are loaded with potassium, fibre and calcium important for healthy growth in adults and children alike. They provide an instant energy boost and they satisfy your “sweet tooth” when you crave a sweet dessert! They are portable and come in their own packaging. This way they make an excellent snack food at work or school. They’re versatile as they lend themselves to different ways of presentation. Their distinctive flavours intensify when you incorporate them into cooking, so you don’t need flavour enhancers when preparing them in recipes. They bake up sumptuous breads, and nutritious and healthy muffins, which we never tire of. You can bake and flambé them for an exciting and delicious dessert, or serve them over ice cream with hot fudge chocolate sauce for a special and decadent treat. You can even freeze them and give them to your teething toddler for nutritious relief from those itchy and irritating gums! When they become over ripe, don’t despair! Refrigerate them and use in any of the following sumptuous recipes.
