“This recipe is exquisite, just released and already I've had requests for its' presentation on a plate...Just a hint of fire with all the nutty sweetness of sauteed bananas. You may add more chiles for more heat when making the chile jelly. I always make the Chile jelly the day before so the flavors fuse together.”
