1/1 Photo of Fried Bananas With Sugar 'n' Rum
A Caribbean-inspired recipe from the Caribbean, Central American and South American cookbook. Be sure to use ripe, but not overly ripe bananas or they will turn to mush.

- 1Tip: to make your own superfine sugar, place the sugar in a clean coffee mill or mini-chopper. Blend until crystals are fine but still "sparkle". Be sure not to blend too long, or the sugar will turn to powdered sugar.
- 2Over low heat in a large, heavy pan, combine the sugar, rum, butter, lime zest and lime juice.
- 3Cook for a few minutes, stirring often to avoid burning. Cook until the sugar has dissolved.
- 4Add the bananas to the pan, turning to coat them with the sugar/rum mixture.
- 5Increase heat to medium, and cook the bananas for about 5 minutes or until the bananas are a beautiful golden color.
- 6Remove bananas from pan and cut in half lengthwise.
- 7For each serving, place two banana slices on a dessert plate. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and generous drizzle of the hot sugar/rum sauce.
