    What to do with lots of bananas?

    Our banana trees are giving us a good few bunches of bananas.

    I'd like to do something with them and maybe give it out to the neighbours.

    What though.

    Frozen banana... (put in a blender with some milk and cinnamon powder, then poured in a container and frozen) would be an option.

    Banana Jam? Never did it, but would be interested in giving it a go.

    Any other ideas?

    One of my favorites,


    Banana Bread Recipe

    Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 1 hour Yield: Makes one loaf.

    No need for a mixer for this recipe! Clean-up is easy too, if you want, you can mix everything in one bowl.

    The best bananas to use for banana bread are those that are over-ripe. The yellow peels should be at least half browned, and the bananas inside squishy and browning.

    INGREDIENTS

    2-3 very ripe bananas, peeled
    1/3 cup melted butter
    1 cup of sugar (can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet)
    1 egg, beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    Pinch of salt
    1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

    METHOD

    Preheat the oven to 350F (175C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
    In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.

    Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.

    Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350F (175C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

    Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

    _______________

    or take them to the local market and give them away (or sell)
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    banana bread is good, there are a lot of recipes on the net.
    Next time I try I will use a recipe with oil instead of butter because when I'm in Thailand butter is not easy to get.
    Think I've used that recipe S L.

    I found it better to peel them and then put in a plastic bag in the freezer.
    Thaw later for 5 mins, then force them into a blender while still largely hard. For this purpose I have made a bit of wood with a cross-piece which prevents it going down too far and touching the blades. The paddle stops just short of the blades.
    You need to force it in while it's still mostly frozen....but not ROCK-hard. The result is perfect ice-cream.

    Yeah...
    That would be my second choice for preserving large quantities.
    Nice slightly sweet natural snackie.

    Already popular, a good dense banana bread would be my first option.
    Producing many loaves and freezing them - if one has the ability and room.

    Indeed....
    Most might be surprised as to the celebrated and lovely distilled liquor one can produce with bananas/plantains.

    crush the bananas, mix with oats and nuts, and bake for 15 minutes. Delicious healthy cookies.

    Job done.

    3 shots vodka, 2 shots gin, 1 shot sambuca and stick a banana in it, et voila, you have yourself a banana buggerer

    Gonna try that with muesli with maybe egg or honey too.
    We have about 50+ trees planted more as ornamental...our dogs like bananas so do lots of birds/bees,mostly they get given away though. Seems they are in continual fruit so no need to store,freeze or whatever.

    Most of today's hybrids worldwide have a common tie with Siam.

    ....as bananas/plantains are native to Thailand and diffused throughout time.
