Banana Stew with Cocoanut


  • 5 bananas
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cocoanut


Boil the bananas. To boil bananas do not remove the skins. Just pour enough boiling water over them to cover them. Add a little salt to the water. As soon as the skins crack they are done. Remove and cool. When cool, take off the skins, scrape the bananas a little and split them.

Make a syrup of the sugar and cocoanut and half a cup of water. Pour this over the boiled bananas and serve. This dish is much appreciated by the children.
