I won't recommend banana chutney. That was on of the 10 worst tasting things I ever cooked or baked.

I remember when DH brought home a whole bunch of bananas left over from a tournament, I sliced and dehydrated them. You can do it in a low oven if you don't have a dehydrator.

Yes, forgot to mention the possible hazards of the dish. Whatever liquor you're using will create a flame. Brandy is especially flammable, so take caution when preparing it.

The Wikipedia: flambé article has a good warning: "For safety reasons, it is recommended that alcohol never be added to a pan on a burner, and that the cook use a long fireplace match." (They also warn against using Everclear or 151 proof liquors which are much too flammable for this application, and suggest instead liquors with about 40% or 80 proof alcohol content.)

I haven't had a gas stove since I started flambéing. I have seen cooking shows where the chef pulls the pan to the side and tilts it to light it on the gas flame.

If I am flambéing at the table, I use an electric frying pan. I have been know to use SAQ.com - Alcool Global 94% - 90076 () when the alcohol wouldn't ignite. It works. You don't need much. You do need to be careful.

Yeah I've seen those TV chefs do that too. I think I could do it without immolating myself but I'm pretty sure I'd slop some of the pan contents onto the stove. I use a long handled propane lighter instead, and one day it will probably explode in my hand.

BTW grain alcohol like Everclear (95%) makes the damned best Bloody Marys! Doesn't dilute the tomato juice. Gotta reduce the pour though or your guests will be spending the night on your floor.

I hate bananas, but because they eat a banana a day, I incorporated the bananas in their V'Day breakfast. They ate it up.
Okay, I gotta try this one! Thanks CWS!

When I have a lot of banannas, I often make bananna bread. You could put as much as 8 banannas in a loaf or even just one. The more you put in, the more moist and delicious the bread is.

Here is recipe I suggest, but you can modify it depending on which ingredients you have in the house. Bake at 250 C until it looks well done

Ingredients:
Mix mashed banannas with flour, pinch of salt and some baking soda, and some water if needed.
After you form a loaf, sprinkle sugar and cinnemon on top of it, and then bake.

Goodweed beat me to the punch.

Frozen Chocolate-covered bananas on a stick. Dip them in melted chocolate and roll them in chopped nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc.

Banana S'mores - Sliced bananas, graham crackers, square of chocolate or smear of nutella. Micro heat till chocolate melts.

Slice the banana(s) lengthwise, fill with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips, wrap in foil, & grill.
