Banana Tart with Blueberries

August 21, 2013

Caramelized Banana

I love cooking with bananas!  Frying, baking, mushing! Anything other than eating over ripe bananas raw.  I have never caramelized bananas before and I think it is a great fruit to sugar up, not just apples and pears.  I made a lovely tart for my best friend for a catch up.  I was in an extra sweet mood so added some blueberries to my easy peasy tart.
