The combination of the ginger and the bananas was a little weird. I had 5 people try it, and none thought that it was horrible, but all agreed that it tasted like bananas trying to be apples (ie, the spices were more suited for a apple recipe). If you like the combination of bananas and ginger, you might like this recipe. I definitly will not make it again though.
