Ingredients

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 2 Ounces kirsch
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Split the bananas and remove each half from the skin without breaking. (Do not discard the skins.) Make slices partway through each half without allowing the pieces to separate. In a bowl, let these bananas macerate in the kirsch and about ½ cup sugar, then put them back in their skins and place them in a baking dish.

Pour the butter over them, sprinkle with the remaining sugar, and cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until caramelized.

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
