Boiled Green Banana
So….does this look appetizing to you?
Boiled green banana, saltfish and dumpling
Boiled green banana is another staple in the Jamaican diet, mostly for breakfast and usually served with saltfish and dumpling. That picture is a meal someone cooked us for breakfast. My mom took the picture and this was pretty much her first meal in Jamaica. She said the bananas looked like unhealthy sausage links LOL. But she was a trooper and tried it all anyways and loved it.
Green banana in a pot
The first time someone served me banana for breakfast they served it with a boiled up cabbage and veggie mish-mash of goodness. Lots of people have cooked me lots of things in Jamaica and I have to say that green banana is one of my favorites. They’re kind of bland after they get boiled but they’re an awesome side dish to anything greasy!
