Back in Blackened


Intrigued by The Kitchn’s post on “banana” ice cream – pureed frozen banana that resembles ice cream – I had to put it to the test.  Never to waste a thing, I had a blackened frozen banana in the freezer, ripe for trying out.  A not so quick peel (no one tells you that the skin to frozen bananas are stick on, and don’t just slip off), a quick whirr in the blender, and it’s done.  So easy, it barely merits itself as a “recipe”.  It looks like ice cream, has the consistency of ice cream, and is sweet indeed.  For a little more dimension, I added some burned pecans, which I also couldn’t bring myself to throw away, hoping that they would redeem themselves one day.    I also topped my dessert with unloved grilled figs for a little charcoal.  Two, if not three, wrongs made a right.
