  • “Reviewed for ZWT3.Loved it!Had a banana that was on its way to the trash (not gone, but going).It was wonderful!I didn’t use that much honey, and used a full teaspoon of rum — it was enough.Very good!”

  • “This is a great way to get rid of bananas when they are just about to turn. I recommend using a lot of honey – but I do have a sweet tooth. I only made one change, I sprinkled them with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. Just make sure you eat them quickly – while they are still hot. “
