Honey Whiskey Fried Bananas

Boy, bananas have really been a topic around here lately! One of the meds the doctor gave Kenny was potassium tablets and unfortunately they didn’t agree with him or at least that was our version. Doctors disagree saying that they never heard of these pills causing swelling. So with that, the doc told him to eat as many bananas as possible to get the potassium….Okay so now bananas are a staple here in our abode!

Look like they have a bonnet on.

Within the last couple of weeks I heard on TV to wrap the banana stems with plastic wrap to keep them from spoiling so quickly. Then again soon after, I read the same thing on the internet. I had already tried it and have found that it does work although I did have one bad incident and I think it was my own damn fault! I decided to wrap the plastic a little too tight securing it with a rubber band and the banana skins split, OOPS! I also heard that stores were starting to sell them with the stems already wrapped, but I had yet to see that done here until a trip to the grocery store just this week and there they were, sitting there so pretty with their little plastic hats on!

 

weather stck,book 006On a recent excursion to the thrift store, I came across a new collection to my cookbooks called The Sea Cook by Sallie Townsend and Virginia Ericson dated 1968. It’s a cookbook of all different and simple ways to prepare food on your boat using a lot of canned meats and vegetables (something I try to avoid like running a boat onto a reef!) One of my first thoughts was, where was this book when I worked on a shrimp boat with my ex, it could have made life a little simpler! While skimming through the pages, I came upon a recipe for Bananas au Rhum and although I had heard of this, never tried it before, until today! Okay dilemma time, not having any rum in the house, I decided to use honey whiskey in lieu of the rum and brown sugar that the recipe called for. Oh my, husband and I are now addicted and will be having these again atop some nice homemade vanilla ice cream or over a nice piece of pound cake; it was stupendous to say the least!

You really should try this...Yummmmy!

Baked Ham With Honey Whiskey

This Easter was just Kenny and I and a big ham is just too much for us so we bought a small boneless ham, which we are still munching on and part of it even has to go into the freezer for later meals. It’s amazing how, the older you get, the less amount of food you actually consume.

indexjesseA few weeks ago, our local liquor store was having a taste test on some of the different whiskeys put out by Jesse James and the America’s Outlaw Honey Whiskey wound up coming home to our liquor cabinet. Now as there are many different recipes for a ham glaze, many calling for Bourbon, I was dying to try the honey whiskey poured over our ham for Easter and hoped it would be suitable for eating! I made homemade Hawaiian Bread Rolls to enjoy with the ham and as they call for crushed pineapple and all I had was a large can, I had plenty left over to cover the top of the ham, killing two birds with one stone as they say! So I put the ham in some foil, poured the honey whiskey generously over the top, sprinkled it with some powdered cloves and topped it off with the pineapple. I did not use a lot of seasoning as we wanted the honey and pineapple flavors to stand out with the meat. Because it was a small ham, I cooked it sealed up in a slow oven for about 1-1/2 hours and basting it about every 20 minutes or so.

 

Wow, we’re we impressed as it melted in our mouths, tender and juicy with just enough flavoring to compliment the ham and our whole meal of sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli and bread! And then of course, the next day’s sandwiches on those yummy rolls was another success story waiting to be told!

As Jesse would say - Dadburn that's good!

Well, I am a little late with this one, but still wanted to share and hope you try it for yourselves! I also hope everyone had a great Easter and now it’s time to start thinking of picnics and BBQ’s!!!!!
