bananas in syrup bananas in syrup

Banana in syrup is one of my favorite desserts. While the delicious, shiny red pieces of banana look like candy, they are not as sweet as they appear.

The small bananas common in Thailand called gluay nam wah(กล้วยน้ำว้า) are a key ingredient in this recipe. In the US, the closest type of banana I found was Manzano.

Bananas in syrup is easy to make and tastes great, but making it beautifully red does take a little patience.

4 Servings, Prep Time: 10 Minutes, Total Time: 1 Hours30 Minutes

Tips and Techniques

  • Limewater helps firming up the ripened banana.
  • The most common problem is getting the bananas to turn beautifully red. The secret is patience.  After an hour of cooking, the bananas start to turn red.  Keep the heat low and continue to cook until all the banana pieces are red.
  • I have tried to shorten the cooking time by adding bananas when the syrup has thickened, unfortunately, it didn't work.
