Going Bananas!

Summertime again in the Philippines! April and May make me think about yummy halo-halo, gulaman at sago, turon, banana cue, etc.

Someone gave us a bunch of saba ~~a type of cooking bananas from the Musaceae family. ( who cares about botanical nomenclature, anyway!)

Peeled and halved, then fried in cooking oil, saba makes a good serving of afternoon snacks. Rolled in brown sugar or not (suit yourself) it is definitely a filling snack guaranteed to keep you feeling full and sated for hours. If you're not afraid of butter, a dab would surely add flavor.

I like mine well done. Save the dark ones for me!

  1. I also love golden brown saba. They said it's good for the heart.
