The winter weather finally hit us here in Florida; we had our first hard frost last night. Normally, our freezes come much earlier when our banana crop isn’t ripe enough for picking. This year with the late cold weather meant bananas for us!

These guys are much smaller and more starchy than the ubiquitous Cavendish sold in stores, so they’re better cooked than they are eaten raw. We made some jerk chicken and peppers, and pretended we were in Jamaica.

Ingredients:

Small plantains or bananas
Vegetable oil

Instructions:

Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Peal the banana, and cut in half length-wise. Saute for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the side starts to brown. Eat immediately.
