● 600 g bananas (peeled)
● 400 g sugar
● 1 cinnamon stick
● 100 g water
● 50 g orange juice
● 30 g cognac
● juice of 1 lemon
Peel the bananas and slice into bite-sized pieces.
Place them in a bowl and pour over the lemon and orange juice.
Put the water and the sugar in a large pot.
Bring to a boil, and once the sugar has dissolved, add the bananas together with the lemon juice and orange juice we poured over the bananas.
Boil for 5 minutes with the sugar and then remove the bananas into a bowl.
Simmer on medium heat until the syrup reaches the right consistency.
Once the syrup is ready, add the bananas back in, pour in the cognac and boil all together for another 5 minutes.
Turn off the heat, allow to cool and store in a sterilized jar.
Served great with ice cream once it has cooled.
