Caramelized Bananas

MSCD beginner recipe

You have to act fast when cooking this recipe, so have all of your ingredients
measured and ready before you begin cooking. The bananas should be in and out of the skillet in no more than 1 ½ minutes or they’ll turn to mush.

1 large, firm (but ripe) banana, peeled
1 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. honey
⅛ cup orange juice
¼ tsp. cinnamon

Quarter the banana by cutting it in half cross-wise and length-wise. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. When butter is melted, drizzle in honey, and then add bananas, cut side up. Cook for 20 seconds, lightly stirring the sauce without disturbing the bananas. Add orange juice and cinnamon. Carefully turn bananas cut side down and cook for another 45 seconds, basting with sauce as they cook. Remove bananas and sauce from skillet and serve immediately as is or over French Toast (The Road to Health pg. 90) or Banana Ice Cream (pg. 138).
