As usual we had too many bananas. Reason? The eldest, the main banana consumer in the family, had gone orienteering in Sweden. Now, I know the lowly banana has split many camps in regard to ethical/ organic / food miles. but in reality, I think bananas are probably here to stay. So however uncomfortable I am about them, they are the essence of food used by orienteerers. Easily digestible and prepared food. But now, with the *monkey* absent, a few bananas were going brown in the fruit basket. I took down a reasonable “posh” cookbook off my recipes–to-try shelf.
