A few of you have grilled bananas and you got me wanting some so I made a little dessert after dinner tonight from ingredients on-hand.
Halved and pitted several cherries. Then pureed them in a blender. Added sugar, vanilla, sour cream and a little lemon juice.
Brought to a very low simmer. Halved a banana.
Grilled the banana cut-side down then flipped over and topped with a little brown sugar. A little cherry wood was added to the coals just for ambiance.
Close the lid on the grill to caramelize the sugar. Then plated and topped with the cherry puree.
This is one of the rare times I actually used a spatula on the grill. Did want to risk loosing the soft bananas. The banana was sweet while the cherry puree added a tart tang, but not too tart.
Next time I’ll not cook the cherrys to keep it a fresh sauce to see which I like better. The sauce also has a better red color.
This was soooooo good! Thanks for giving me this idea. :_;(
My dear Bob this dessert is fantastic!
That looks fantastic Bob! My hubby would have made me make him a banana split! [+]
That will have to be on my to cook list!
