It’s summertime once again and when the weather’s hot and nasty, all you want to do is eat something refreshing. Today when I went to the market, I thought of buying bananas to make some desserts for my children. I also bought jackfruit or langka as it’s Andrea’s favorite. On my way home, I told myself that I’ll make banana fritters or turon and sweetened banana. I was excited when I arrived.
Immediately, I organized all the stuff I bought. Cleaned the fish and washed all the vegetables. Put them in the fridge and started my way cooking lunch. I made vegetable spring rolls for everyone to eat. Then I cooked the bananas.
The bananas are beautiful and they are just the perfect fit for my dessert. I peeled them off and set them aside while waiting for my sugar to be dissolved. As the sugar in the water continues to boil, I added vanilla, bananas, and langka. Covered the pot and waited till my bananas absorbed all the sweetness from the sugar. After sometime, it’s done and I liked it. It’s yummy and it’s really good.
