I just cut a stalk of bananas off one of our trees as well as a very nice looking flower from a new stalk that has blossomed. I know the flower is quite bitter and is used some Asian cuisines. Anyone care to share their favorite way to enjoy banana flowers. Thanks
You should check out some of the South Indian recipes as well. I haven't tried banana blossom curry myself, but I really love the taste and texture of cooked banana blossoms and figure some of the recipes I've seen might be an intriguing step in the right direction.
I was going to suggest the same oxtail stew! Filipino kare kare, it's delicious with banana blossom. (Sadly, when we find banana blossoms in Iowa, they tend to be kind of limp or even a bit moldy, though we've wondered about using artichokes to approximate them!)
