JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Now it's an excess of Bananas!

Last time I posted it was all about my excess of lemons and this time it's about Bananas.  We only have two banana trees but they decided to throw a flower at the same time so we are going to have a lot of bananas.

 Each flower blossoms into dozens of bananas and they nearly always ripen at the same time.  Another gardener friend suggested cutting off a hand of the green bananas and ripen them inside as we need them so we will give it a go.  I've tried lots of different recipes for banana loaf and have some favourites and I have also had a go at banana and passionfruit jam.  It was okay but not a keeper recipe.
