Food on Friday: Go bananas!



ON


Okey dokey, this week we are collecting recipes/ideas for using bananas.

Update:  I have now made up a Pinboard for these links.  Click here if you would like to see it.

To get you started thinking, here is Stephanie Alexander's list of what goes well with bananas:

Bacon
Breakfast cereals
Brown sugar
Caramel
Chicken
Chillies
Cinnamon
Coconut
Cream
Cumin
Curry spices
Fish
Fruit salad
Honey
Kirsch
Lemons
Maple syrup
Nutmeg
Nuts
Onions
Pork
Raisins
Rum
Sugar
Vanilla
yoghurt


One or two things on this list were a surprise to me – like onions and pork.

So just put your links into Mr Linky below.  And while you are here check out other Food on Friday editions on ingredients you might be interested in.  You will find them in a sidebar to the right (just under the list of Cryptic crossword clue types – which is another whole subject entirely).

  2. I thought the same thing about the onions and pork.... cumin and chicken too. Thanks for inviting me to link my mini sour cream banana breads. If it's okay, I'd like to link my most popular recipe post as well - To die For Banana Bread with Vanilla Bean Frosting, which has had almost 40,000 hits.

  12. What an interesting list of food pairings with bananas! Chilis? Fish? Pork? All seems a bit strange to me, but I'd be willing to give it a try at least once. I was surprised that peanut butter was not on the list. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches are one of my favourites!

  15. Bananas are a great way to include sweetness without including sugar and it's a great way to use them up if they've gone a bit 'over' in the fruit bowl. I've posted some baby friendly recipes with no added sugar. Remember as well if you're going to use them in cooking and they're going a bit over ripe, you can always peel, chop and freeze them until you have a chance to whip up a batch of pancakes or whatever.

  18. Hi Carole! I love the list of what goes well with bananas. It's a great resource to have. I wasn't surprised to see onions on the list - we grew up eating peanut butter, banana and onion sandwiches. I know, they sound horrible, but are surprisingly delicious! Have a great week!!
