Re: Banana Recipes?

Interesting. I'll have to try the flatbread. As for canning bananas, no, you can not can them by themselves. However, there are recipes that they are an ingredient that are able to be canned. If you want a yummy spread, look up the cinnamon banana butter recipe that Ball has on their site. Seriousl...

No canning recipe but I've made banana peel flatbreads that turned out good. (Done tortillas too but they weren't as tasty and were more work.) Pretty simple, wash bananas, peel, chop up banana peel as finely as you can manage, heat oven to 325F, dump peels into a bunch of flour, along with some oil...
