  • 2tsp rum
  1. Heat ghee in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. As soon as the ghee stare boil start mixing in the brown sugar.
  3. Add the sliced bananas.
  4. Wait about 5 minutes for the first side.
  5. After the 5 minutes has passed, start checking the bottoms to see if they’re browned a bit.
  6. When they look browned, flip and brown the other side.
  7. When both sides look good golden colour
  8. sprinkle the rum over the pan and immediately light it on fire.

  10. This gives the bananas a nice crispy skin and a great flavor
