Creamy, soft and sweet, bananas are a unique fruit that love being mashed, chopped or sliced into puddings, pies and cakes. Of course, they’re not only ideal for desserts and treats, they can be just as happy on a plate of savoury food. I love to fry sliced banana in a little butter and serve it with bacon for breakfast — in the American south, fried chicken is often served with fried bananas.

The sweetness of bananas can also work really well with spicy dishes — like in the Caribbean, or India, where they are eaten with curries or mixed with yoghurt, mint and sultanas to serve as a sweet, cooling raita.
