I haven't tried this yet but am looking forward to using it when my banana trees ripen. Originally from a Charmaine Solomon book.

This is good, Instructions are clear, it is simple to make. I just cut 5 banana blossoms from the yard and have been trying several recipes. Missy must grow all the same things I do as I keep bumping into her recipes to use the abundance from my yard.

This is really very good. Tho I wasn't exactly sure how to prepare the blossom to make the recipe, I did what I found on-line and it seemed to work. Once the blossom is cleaned, the rest of the recipe is easy. Only change I made was I used large green onions instead of yellow onions. I served it over jasmine rice. I will make this again, but will seek out better blossom prep instructions then the ones I just used. The taste is very good.
