A future dish. Banana blossom. (Musa balbisiana)

I will report later how the wife cooks it. I think she said she chops it up.

I don't why Sandra you wouldn't be able to do the same. Just use the blossom of Musa basjoo.

Ironic that where it can be grown,down to a frigid zone 6...the population is unfamiliar with cooking the bloom. Imagine the waste!

Some say it taste like cabbage and makes a good salad.
Nothing complicated like the coconut milk and fish or pork and chicken, recipes that use the banana flower bud.

I am not even sure which ones they are. I was given a pot full last year.

I was just told I waited too long to pick. Hmm. They went on to say "Pick before any hands form". Well,always next year.
