“come mr. tallyman, tally me bananas…”

Another great recipe from Alex. This time a dessert!
Sautéed Bananas and Carmel Coated Pecans
Ingredients:
2 bananas peeled, split down middle, and cut into thirds
handful of raw pecans, broken into pieces (as small or large as you’d like)
1 T maple syrup (more or less depending on your taste)
2-3 T butter
t Vanilla extract (more or less depending on your taste)
1/4 t ground cinnamon (more or less depending on your taste)
Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat stirring frequently. Once butter has melted and browned slightly, add pecans. Cook until fragrant (3 minutes or so). Add the maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon. Cook 2-3 more minutes. At this point assess the caramel consistency. If it’s too thick, add a touch of water to thin out slightly. Once it’s a consistency you like, add the bananas to the pan and cook for 2 minutes or so (just until slightly softened.
Be careful not to over cook or it will become mushy.
Serve with ice cream, other fruit, whipped cream, or your favorite side…
