I like to cook and just tried a new recipe I found online...banana peel bacon.
I downsized the recipe for one banana...
1 banana peel cut in 4 strips 1 T. soy sauce 1 t. maple syrup 1/8 t. garlic powder 1/8 t. paprika
mix the ingredients and soak the peels in it for about 10 - 15 minutes. Fry them in oil on medium heat until toasty and brown, maybe with a bit of char on them too.
It doesn't taste like bacon but I was pleasantly surprised.....first you taste the sweetness of the banana, then it finishes with the salty/ savory taste from the marinade and a bit of char. I think it would good on a sandwich layer or maybe cut up in a salad. Would be OK with breakfast too.
Good point. I made sure to wash it first. The soy sauce made it a bit salty. I may play with the recipe. I think cinnamon would be good so maybe just leave out the soy and other stuff and soak them in maple syrup and cinnamon, keep it sweet....yeah, that's the ticket!
