If you have an ice cream machine, puree the bananas, add a little lemon or lime juice, and turn them into "ice cream."

Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger (Two Hot Tamales) came up with this alternative to guacomole, which appeared in the book Yum! Tasty Recipes From Culinary Greats:

Spicy Banana Dip

2 tbls vegetable oil
1yellow onion, diced
1 tsp sea salt or to taste
2 tsp grated or minced fresh ginger root (about 1 inch of root)
2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1 whole serrano chile, grated or minced
2 bananas, mashed with a fork
2 tbls cider vinegar
4 tbls water
3 tbls chopped cilantr

Heat the vegetable oil in a small pot. Add the onion and salt and cook over medium heat until golden brown. Add the grated ginger, garlic, and serrano chili and cook a minute or two to release the aromas. Add the banana, vinegar and water and simmer briefly. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Stir in chopped cilantro and serve.

I thank you so much for the quick replies.

I will be making the banana ice cream to serve along side my chocolate torte. The chutney and dip I will save for my next patches of ripe bananas. I am always looking for new recipes for ripe bananas as I seem to always have them on the counter.

Banana Horseradish Salad
Cut bananas into 1 inch chunks. Toss thru 1 tsp lemon juice. Mix 1 Tbsp Horseradish relish with 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup single cream, plus a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Gently mix thru bananas. Chill 1 or 2 hours before serving.

This is an unusual savoury salad, goes well with bbq'd meats.

Thanks,

I will add that to my ripe banana file. It looks like a real new twist on using horseradish. I really enjoy horseradish because of its diuretic properties.

Talk about Banana heaven !!!!

I have decided to go buy some more bananas to try these dishes, the fish dish I will make thursday. I have had it with pompano once but I would like to try the sole with a light cream sauce or mango beurre blanc.

Thank you Ed.

I've been doing banana frozen yogurt without machines since I was a young kid - my favorite kid dessert!

Puree the bananas with a little sugar, add a bit of lemon juice, about the same volume in yogurt, spread at the bottom of a large container (so it freezes fast and without too big ice crystals) and freeze.

Few hours later, take out, mix and serve.

Or if you can't bother waiting, skip the whole freezing part and eat your yogurt banana! :talk:

That sounds very intriguing, I HAVE to try that soon!

My ex-wife won the blue ribbon at the state fair a couple of times for her banana bread. Man was it good. I don't have a recipe but she said the bananas need to be ripe enough that the skins are just about totally black.

Banana Burritos

Take a banana and cut it in half length ways
Take a tortilla wrap and spread peanut butter on it and place the banana on it and add chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.

Wrap it up like a burrito and brush some melted butter on the outside and toss it on the grill until the chocolate and marshmallow melts and nice grill marks on the outside.
post #15 of 28
Hmmm that Burrito sounds sinfully good!! Reminds me of another (less elaborate) late nite sin:

1) Unpeel banana
2) Spread some Nutella along the banana (alternatively you can use Peanut Butter, but Nutella works better)
3) If available, also spread some sweet vanilla-chestnut cream on the other side of the banana.
4) If available, add some whipped cream on top.

Have you heard banana crepe? It's really good!
Just prepare a thin wrapper crepe made of pancake.
You use that to wrap the banana together with
whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Or simply
sliced the banana and add three scoops of any
flavor ice cream and put syrup on top! :bounce:

Buttered toast topped with bananas - sliced - topped with coconut and demerara sugar. dabbed with a wee bit more butter and under the grill

Alternativly According to St Bob Flowerdew. Stick them amongst your unripened tomato plants . I've got 3 in with mine at the moment. The gasses they give off are slowly working

If I need to use up bananas I make oatmeal banana bars. Pretty good for you too. Take two cups quick cooking oats, applesauce, cinnamon, nutmeg, two mashed up bananas, raisins. Combine all ingredients and bake 350 degrees, about 30-40 minutes.

My wife hides our bananas so they'll get overripe and I'll use them to make banana pancakes or waffles.

I put all the bananas in a bowl and whisk them down to a liquid then add the flour, baking powder, vanilla, buttermilk and eggs to make the batter. I cook them on a slower griddle than most pancakes as they do have a tendency to burn quickly due to the banana.

When I pour them on the griddle, I add chopped walnuts to the uncooked side so that when flipped, the walnuts are now in the pancake.

I have to admit, they really are good!!!

I do create beyond Italian!:D

I just wanted to let you know that I made this to go with dinner tonight. I did sub a jalapeno for the serranno chile. I thought it was very good. My daughter didn't like it because of the cilantro but said otherwise, it was good to her. My son wouldn't try it at all and Les wasn't at home for dinner. I served it with a beef fajita type dish and Indiana fry bread.

Banana Crepes with Brown Sugar Rum Sauce
heres the recipe:
* Crepes:
* 2 large eggs
* 3/4 cup milk
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 2 tablespoons melted butter
* 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* .
* Sauce:
* 1 cup brown sugar, packed
* 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
* 2 tablespoons rum
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1/3 cup heavy cream
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* .
* 4 to 5 bananas
* cinnamon sugar
* berries, pecans, or more banana slices for garnish

In a blender, blend eggs with milk. Add the flour, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour into a container, cover, and refrigerate let stand for 1 hour or refrigerate for up to 12 hours.

To cook, heat a lightly buttered 7" or 8" crepe pan. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the hot pan and swirl the pan so the batter coats the bottom of the pan. Cook until the edges begin to brown. Carefully lift with a thin spatula and flip over. Cook for a few seconds, just until lightly browned. Place on a plate and repeat with remaining batter. If you will be storing the crepes for a short time, separate the crepes with small squares of waxed paper.

Make the sauce: In a medium saucepan combine 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup, 2 tablespoons rum, 2 tablespoons butter, the heavy cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. The mixture will foam, so be careful it doesn't boil over. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.

Slice a banana; arrange half of the slices down the center of a crepe and drizzle with a little of the sauce and sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar; roll up and place on a serving plate. If desired, sprinkle with a few berries, extra slices of banana, or pecans. Drizzle the crepe with more rum sauce and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Repeat with remaining crepes and bananas. Makes about 8 crepes, depending on size.
